Marion — Dancers from New Bedford Ballet performed two shows at Sippican School on Wednesday afternoon.

The dancers, students ranging from 12-18, performed a ballet about a young slave and her family's escape to freedom using the underground railroad. The story was set in 1860s Virginia on a cotton farm.

After the performance the dancers took questions from students such as: "How do you dance so good?" and "How do you get your legs so high?"

The answer to both? Lots of practice.
