Join us this March for Cinderella!
Fisher Ballet Productions is excited to be partnering with Misty Copeland, Open World Dance Foundation, and American Ballet Theatre to present Cinderella at the Palace in Waterbury CT on March 15th & 16th! Misty Copeland will be backstage with the dancers and will be presenting a discussion onstage prior to each show. Ballet stars from American Ballet Theatre will be performing with us!
Who can participate in performances:
Children as young as 3 years old, WITH OR WITHOUT dance experience, have the chance to be introduced to the performing arts world and experience the magical story of Cinderella alongside world-renowned stars.
If you are a pre-professional or professional dancer, we offer the chance to star in SOLOIST AND PRINCIPAL ROLES and the opportunity to reach the next level in your dance career. Gain impressive performing experience for your resume, meet new connections and mentors, and access tools to help you find new work opportunities worldwide!
If you are an adult who simply loves to dance or an experienced ballroom dancer looking for a unique production, we open Cinderella’s stunning “Ballroom Scene” to you full of delightful waltzes and swirling dresses!
REHEARSALS: Rehearals will start at the end of January (around January 28) and will continue for the month of February and part of March. I believe you likely won’t need to be at rehearsal for more than 1-2 hours, since you likely will not have multiple roles. Rehearsals for Cinderella will be with me in Bristol and at Brass City Ballet in Middlebury CT. If you are unable to travel to rehearsals in Middlebury, I can arrange for your rehearsal to be with me, but please let me know so I can coordinate with the artistic team. Please also let me know about any scheduled conflicts in advance so that I can work around them since we have only a very short time to rehearse.
PARTICIPATION FEE: $125
