Cinderella with Dance & Choreography Showcase
Sat, April 29, 2017, 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM PDT
Come and experience a concert with both classical and character dance in the abridged version of the beloved story of Cinderella for Act 1 and in Act 2 a delightful mix of dance genres:
Cinderella’s life with her cruel stepmother and stepsisters is one of drudgery and hardship until the evening of an extravagant party at the palace. With the help of her Fairy Godmother, she’s the centre of attention when she arrives at the ball in a magical coach and wearing a gorgeous gown. The handsome Prince sweeps her off her feet and they dance the night away until the clock chimes midnight and the evening comes to an abrupt end. The Prince scours the land, looking for the Princess of his dreams and finds her in an unlikely place...
