Sleeping Beauty

Ballet Jörgen, Ontario
Friday, October 2, 2015 at 10:00 am
Grades: 7 - 12

Ballet Jörgen Canada has been honing their talents with classical dance renditions of The Velveteen Rabbit and The Emperor’s New Clothes for the past 25 years. Now they have finally created their own unique version of Sleeping Beauty – presenting its World Premiere right here in Burlington. With a beautiful score by Tchaikovsky, the enchanting story of Aurora and her Prince, complete with its inherently magical qualities and dazzling choreography comes to life. This ideal pairing of fairy tales and dance is the perfect recipe to introduce classical ballet to students.

Note: The performance will be a maximum of 80 minutes in length.
