Ballet Ariel Presents A Little Cinderella
March 19, 2017
Ballet Ariel will once again delight audiences of all ages with A Little Cinderella, March 19th at the D.L. Parsons Theatre at the Northglenn Recreation Center. This beloved story, beautifully crafted and performed by Ballet Ariel’s professional company, returns for one show only.
Ballet Ariel has abbreviated its full-length Cinderella just for little audience members treating them to a perfect afternoon of magic and wonder. Little hearts will be spellbound as the flower fairies dance with the coachmen, elegant ladies waltz and Cinderella captivates Prince Charming. Ever hopeful, the wicked stepsisters carry on wildly in a vain attempt to entice the Prince but they are no match for Cinderella’s charm and grace.
Like the full-length ballet, A Little Cinderella is performed to Sergei Prokofiev’s entrancing score. The original choreography by Ballet Ariel Director Ilena Norton is sophisticated, dynamic and entertaining yet engaging for guests of any age. Collaborating choreographers, Oleg Dedogryuk and Gregory Gonzales, contribute dances in their unique styles, perfectly complimenting Norton’s classically beautiful style.
Director Ilena Norton describes A Little Cinderella as, “the perfect short, story ballet that young children will enjoy”. Over 35 students from Artistic Fusion Dance Academy in Thornton will perform the children’s roles in the ballet.
A Little Cinderella will be performed on Sunday, March 19th at 3:00 p.m. at D.L. Parsons Theatre at the Northglenn Recreation Center, 11801 Community Center Drive Northglenn, CO 80233.
