“American Girl® Night” is one of the most popular events of SPAC’s classical season, and will be hosted by SPAC and American Girl Place on Wednesday, July 9th, on SPAC’s lawn beginning at 6pm. The event, which takes place before New York City Ballet’s performance at 8pm, will feature arts & crafts, an instrument petting zoo, interactive dance demos, a tea party with lemonade and nut-free cookies and pop-up shops by G. Willikers. The event will feature American Girl’s “Girl of the Year” Isabelle (including a giveaway of 10 dolls), an inspired dancer studying ballet at a performing arts school in Washington, D.C. with a flair for design.
SPAC’s pre-shows began in 2007 as an initiative to engage new and younger audiences to the performing arts. American Girl® Night has consistently been one of the most popular pre-show events, innovatively exposing children to classical performances- often for the first time. SPAC is currently the only performing arts venue with a partnership with American Girl®, collaborating to encourage the successes of young girls through enriching experiences.
This night is always a special night for kids and is one of our family's favorite performances of the summer. We bring a blanket and some chairs to spread out on the lawn, explore all the cool activities they have to offer for the evening and enjoy a classical ballet performance by the New York City Ballet right here in Saratoga Springs, it's incredible!
General lawn admission to attend “American Girl® Night” and the New York City Ballet performance on July 9 for children 12 and under will be $10, with proceeds going to benefit SPAC’s children’s education program, the Vivienne Anderson program. The initiative hosts underprivileged and underserved children each season at performances of New York City Ballet. Click here for tickets and more info.
