The Sleeping Beauty
Originally choreographed by Marius Petipa of the Imperial Ballet, it premiered in St. Petersburg January 15th, 1890, with music composed by Peter Tchaikovsky. A long awaited birth of a Princess came to the King and the Queen. All in the kingdom were invited to the fabulous ball celebrating Aurora's Christening. Fairies were invited from the Fairy realm who brought delightful blessings. But, upset by not being invited to the christening, the wicked fairy Carabosse casts a spell that Aurora will prick her finger and die on her 16th birthday. The Lilac fairy saves Aurora by altering the curse to 100 years of sleep, after which she can be awakened by the kiss of a prince. The Lilac Fairy entrances Prince Florimund with visions of Aurora’s beauty and his kiss awakens her. The story culminates with a grand wedding celebration.
Our Spring Showcase is performed by the entire school, ages 2 & Up. Our youngest dancers will be watching from the audience till its time for their part - we want our youngest dancers to be inspired and see what they will become by watching our Intermediate/Advance dancers on stage.
