NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bright Future International (BFI), a 501(c) (3) international nonprofit organization, whose programming has been backed by United Nations and UNESCO is announcing Brighton Ballet Theater (BBT) as its first official sponsored program partner in New York consummating the partnership by participating in BBT's annual performance of The Nutcracker on Saturday, December 8, 2012.
BFI was created to help shape the future of the world through programs that instill morals, values and positive life experiences for underprivileged children. Consequently, BFI is committed to supporting community organizations, like BBT, that provide youth with programs that encourage these values.
In exchange for BFI funding support, BBT will teach and promote positive life values among BBT students using BFI's Core Curriculum Program. The key piece of the BFI Curriculum is to select teachers who themselves embody such values which they can then pass on to the children. One of BBT's main priorities in this partnership is to make sure that youth have a better understanding of volunteer work, character development and engagement in the community.
"On behalf of myself and students of the Brighton Ballet Theater, I am overwhelmed by the generosity of Bright Future International," said Irina Rozin, founder of BBT. "We look forward to a longstanding relationship as we work together to bring positive life values to the children we are privileged to teach."
The Nutcracker performance is the highest attended BBT event of the year, composed of a junior company of 80+ young dancers. The event will be held at 5p.m. at the Leon M. Goldstein Performing Arts Center in Brooklyn.
"Bright Future International is proud to support the Brighton Ballet Theater," said Anthony Melikhov, founder and president of BFI. "The amazing work Irina Rozin and her staff are doing with children in New York is not only encouraging but also inspiring."
