On Thursday, October 18 and Friday, October 19, Author David Rottenberg made his way to each of the BC elementary schools to give a special reading of his book “Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig” with a little help from the Albany Berkshire Ballet Junior Company.

Students in grades K-2 district wide were able to watch a special dance performance of “Gwendolyn, the Graceful Pig” by members of the School of the Albany Berkshire Ballet while Mr. Rottenberg read along. At the end of each of the presentations at the schools, Mr. Rottenberg introduced the dancers along with Ballet Instructor Deirdre Duffin-Swindlehurst and gave students the opportunity to ask questions. See some of the performance below.

Many thanks to Mr. Rottenberg, Ms. Duffin-Swindlehurst, and the Albany Berkshire Ballet Junior Company for visiting our elementary schools and sharing the story of Gwendolyn.
