MICHIGAN CITY — Judith Joseph continues a 25 year tradition by bringing the "Ballet Lady” to all 10 Head Start of La Porte County classrooms, one at a time, Jan. 22 through Feb. 14. With special permission, the public is welcome to observe.

According to Joseph, the Ballet Lady is the primary outreach program that Metamorphis Traveling Theatre makes available to elementary school children in La Porte County. It is part show and part educational experience, stemming from Joseph’s work with the National Dance & Theatre Institute and Jacques D’Amboise, who pioneered bringing dance to the inner city youth of New York, she said in a release.
