Alabama Dance Theatre
“The Princess Ballets”
Montgomery, AL…The Alabama Dance Theatre’s 2012-2013 spring season will feature an unprecedented event, “The Princess Stories” which will include excerpts from “Cinderella”, “Aladdin”, and “Sleeping Beauty”. “The Princess Ballets & more!” will be performed March 1, 2, & 3 at the Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts.
The magical tale of “Cinderella” will delight audiences with its magnificent costumes and majestic sets. The classic fairytale “Sleeping Beauty” is one of the most enchanting ballets in the dance world. The “Aladdin” excerpt, a premiere, will highlight the romance between the exotic Princess Jasmine and Aladdin.
The performance will also include “C’est la Vie” choreographed by Resident Choreographer Sara Sanford and last performed at the 2007 National Festival in Pittsburgh, PA. Foye DuBose’s popular “HHV101” merges the styles of classical ballet with modern day hip hop. Kitty Seale’s delightful and playful ballet “Invitation to the Dance” depicts the hilarious antics of young girls preparing for their first dance at a nearby military school.
