BALLET SPECTACULAR

A brilliant evening of outstanding classical and contemporary ballet. Bravura technique, expressive movement, the dancers are the stars of the show. Leaves audiences on their feet. Suitable for all ages.

FUSED TUTU

The best of classical ballet blended with the most outrageous of contemporary dance.  Motorcycles and hip-hop join to create the ultimate evening of dance entertainment.

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM

On a dreamy midsummer night’s eve, the worlds of faeiries, humans, dukes and donkeys all collide under the magic spell of cupid’s arrow. We see how true love never runs smooth, as the mischievous puck proclaims, ‘Lord what fools these mortals be!” Shakespeare’s immortal  A Midsummer Night’s Eve  proves that falling in love is the ultimate gift.

 

THE NUTCRACKER

Dance Alive National Ballet tours the full-length Holiday Ballet, ‘The Nutcracker’ and an hour-long version for school shows.  Excellent  educational materials.
Tour availability: November and December
There are two methods of presenting ‘The Nutcracker’:
1.  DANB presents the entire production with children from the Official School in the children’s Act I roles. Adult roles are danced by the Company.
2.  DANB presents the entire production with the children’s Act I roles set on your community dance students. Adult roles are danced by the company.
The ‘Community Nutcracker’ is a highly successful production for your community.  Audience attendance is boosted by the inclusion of community students.

It requires the following:

1.  An audition by Artistic Director Kim Tuttle

2.  A contributed rehearsal space

3.  A committed community dance coordinator who will rehearse the children during the time period between the audition and the performance(s).

4.  A community costume coordinator who will organize costumes.

DANB will provide costumes for all children’s parts except for the party children dresses, basic leotards, tights and shoes which must be provided by the Sponsor or parents of the children. (To be determined by the sponsor.)
The company costume hand-out should  occur the day before the performance.
The Dress Rehearsal with Company dancers will be either the day before or the day of the performance, depending on theatre availability.
DANB will provide information for the audition and be available throughout the process for questions.
DANB provides all sets, props and adult costumes.
