Dancers from the Sacramento Ballet brought their art to Shriners Hospitals for Children Northern California in Sacramento on Tuesday as they performed for young burn patients and children suffering severe orthopedic injuries.

Lizbeth Medina, 6, above center, and Sergio Gutierrez, 10, right, watch pairs of dancers as they perform a lift. After the presentation, Sergio, below, shows the dancers some moves of his own while Maggie Rupp, left, of the ballet follows along.

The ballet aims to both inform and entertain the audience at these performances, which it presents four or five times each year for children, their families and the resident nurses at the Shriners facility

Besides explaining aspects of dance, this visit, featuring a half-dozen dancers, focused on the theme of “Men in Ballet.”
