On May 25th and 26th, the dancers of The Ballet Academy will sweep you away in the majesty and magic of Cinderella. The Stepmother and silly step sisters will try to keep Cinderella from the ball, but with a little help from her fairy godmother, attendants, and some magic mice, Cinderella, in her glass slippers, will surely attend the ball.
The Ballet Academy celebrated its five year anniversary in 2023 with their performance of Paquita. This lively performance showcased the dancers’ stellar technique, vibrant artistry, and lavish tutus.
In 2022, The Ballet Academy was proud to present Act III of Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty. This performance debuted the Academy’s professional, hand sewn tutus, adding to the grandeur of this classical ballet.
Conversations in Choreography
The original works presented in Conversations in Choreography were inspired by the dancers’ strength, resilience, and the joy they had in dance, as they walked through the COVID pandemic.
The inspiration for the 2020 Degas spring production came from a selection of Degas’ works, translated to movement. Due to the COVID pandemic, the presentation of these works took place in December at the Christmas at the Lake performance.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream
In its first year, The Ballet Academy performed excerpts from A Midsummer Night's Dream, taking the audience to Titania and Oberon’s kingdom of fairies.
Christmas at the Lake
Dancers of The Ballet Academy enjoy the opportunity to perform at the Suzanne’s School of Dance annual Christmas at the Lake performance, where they present original works celebrating the Christmas season.
