Excerpt from Sleeping Beauty
The Sleeping Beauty Fairies is an excerpt from The Sleeping Beauty Ballet choreographed by Marius Petipa performed to Tchaikovsky's score. Six fairies are invited to the new princess’ christening to bestow gifts on Princess Aurora. Watch as the beautiful fairies bestow gifts of virtue to Princess Aurora before the ceremony is interrupted by the evil fairy Carabosse who curses the baby because she wasn’t invited.
Beauty and Grace
Chopiniana is a short, non-narrative ballet blanc. This romantic era ballet is the first ballet to be about mood and dance. It has no plot but consists of several white-clad sylphs dancing in the moonlight with the poet. Don’t miss out on this beautiful display of beauty and grace!
March on in!
In honor of Independence Day, the Anchorage Classical Ballet Academy will be performing Stars and Stripes. Stars and Stripes is a unique, patriotic tribute of pure dance, danced in five “campaigns.” It is set to the original music by John Philip Sousa, arranged by Hershy Kay. Don’t miss out on this patriotic performance the weekend before the Fourth of July! Start celebrating American Independence with the Anchorage Classical Ballet Academy’s performance of Stars and Stripes.
Anchorage Classical Ballet Academy students will also perform repertoire learned during the Summer Ballet Intensive during this performance.
