About Host Studio: 11th Avenue Ballet School

11th Avenue Ballet School (Arts in Motion) believes that the arts have a unique power to engage children and motivate them toward excellence. AIM partners with public and private schools, to help make the arts an integral part of every child's education. The teaching artists go into public and private schools and teach all the students of a targeted grade, (3-5). Every child participates. The homeroom teachers participate. Each AIM program culminates with an End-of-Year Performance. For this show, a theme is lifted from their teacher's curriculum. For many, this is an exciting way to bring these facts to life. These programs are offered to the students totally free of charge. The 11th Avenue Ballet School Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to transforming the lives of children through the power of the arts.

About the The Capitol Theatre

Originally built in 1920, The Capitol Theatre has been serving the community for nearly a century. Just after being purchased by the city of Yakima in 1975, much of the Capitol burned to the ground in a tragic fire, leaving nothing but a smoldering facade. The newly formed nonprofit, Capitol Theatre Committee, led fundraising efforts to restore the Theatre to its original glory. It reopened in 1978 (just 733 days after the fire).

The Main Stage is inside the original Pantages-style Capitol Theatre. Located in downtown Yakima, the 1,500 seat Grand Lady is dedicated to showcasing the best live performing artists on both the professional and community levels for audiences of all ages and interests.
