GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) He’s a well-known pop artist who’s always involved in interesting projects, including ones that involve kids. Brian Vander Ark‘s music is now part of a family friendly production put on by the Grand Rapids Ballet.
“Spring Break for Kids: A Different Tune” features music composed by Vander Ark. It takes place on April 8, 9, and 10, at Peter Martin Wege Theatre in Grand Rapids. The fun 30-minute ballet teaches kids that it’s our differences that make us special. It all starts with pre-show activities, when kids can try on costumes, get temporary tattoos, participate in Gymco activities, purchase SchoolZone books and merchandise, and take a free trial ballet class. Participants can also register to win some great prizes!
Tickets are $5 per person. The shows are expected to sell out, so order your ticket now! They’re available at the ballet box office or on ticketmaster.com.
Along with his ballet, Vander Ark is also celebrating a new single called “Crash Landing.” Hear him perform it in studio! The new Verve Pipe CD, “Overboard,” comes out on June 17.
