Just go to our Contact Us page and let us know you are interested. We will follow up with you by phone or e-mail, as you request.

We ask that you book at least one month ahead so that we can see the site and tailor our production, but you can select a date a year or more in advance. Please note, however, that our December weekend performance dates for The Nutcracker are generally booked by early January.
How do we book a show with Pages to Pirouettes?
We travel to our audiences, performing for public and limited audiences in preschools, schools, museums, libraries, churches, synagogues, community centers, senior and special-needs communities, and other venues.

We dance in theaters and auditoriums, but also fellowship halls, community rooms and the like, scaling our production to the space and audience. We also offer back-to-back shows for presenters who need to accommodate a large audience in a limited space, or serve multiple audiences, such as different age groups.

We love working with partners to create special productions of our ballets or to present our ballets as part of a larger event or program, such as a literacy project or an arts workshop to make sets and props. We have lots of ideas and want to hear yours!

We typically perform in Greater Philadelphia, but arrangements can be made for greater distances.
Where does Pages to Pirouettes perform?
At all of our performances, which are under an hour, an actor first reads the story aloud and then we dance it. After our bows, we invite the audience to take a brief ballet lesson (“chair ballet” for those with limited mobility), and visit with us, see our costumes and pointe shoes up close, ask questions, snap some photos.
What happens during a performance?
Under an hour, our charming abridged versions of the grand story ballets are suitable for all ages. We are happy to discuss your audience, space, and any time limitations with you. With long-term notice, you can even commission us to develop a special production of a story ballet.
What ballet would be appropriate for our audience?
The experience of hearing a story read by an actor and seeing the ballet and hearing its music can be used in a number of creative ways to support the development of skills identified in the Pennsylvania Common Core standards. We are happy to coordinate with teachers ahead of time to provide our version of the story and character list, ideas for engaging the students in creating props and sets, discuss the production and music, and even arrange for students to interview the dancers.
How can we make a show part of our curriculum?
Our performance fees, which currently range from $600 to $1,400, depend on the host's choice of ballet and venue capacity. If, for the dancers' safety or to protect the hosts' flooring we need to transport our floor, we charge an additional fee of $75.

We offer a discount on same-day back-to-back performances, and we are happy to discuss a limited engagement fee for a series of performances or a workshop, commissions, or fees for travel beyond Greater Philadelphia.
What does Pages To Pirouettes charge?
As a “ballet caravan,” we are able to bring our shows to many audiences that, whether for lack of mobility or lack of resources, otherwise have limited access to performing arts. Some generous businesses, individuals, and groups donate performances for such underserved audiences or as a fund-raiser for a cause or organization they care about. If you would like to donate a show for a special audience or cause, please let us know.
