AMA Dance Theatre (ADT) proudly presents
Marius Petipa’s classical ballet adaptation of 

The Sleeping Beauty!

Experience a timeless tale of enchantment and love expressed through the art of DANCE. Deep in a century-long slumber, Aurora, the beautiful princess, and her kingdom await the power of true love’s kiss. This classic performance, set to Tchaikovsky’s incredible score, will transport us through this beloved fairy tale with enchanting woodland characters such as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Puss in Boots, a blue bird, benevolent Godmother Fairies, a wicked fairy named Carabosse and Aurora’s spell-breaking Prince Desire.

Our enchanting Cast includes our professional ADT Company which includes Isabel Cary (ADT teacher formerly with Washington Ballet) and Company trainees (two of whom were “Clara” in Festival Ballet Providence’s Nutcracker this past December). Professional Company guests include McGee Maddox (Former Principal Dancer with National Ballet of Canada and Broadway Star), George Sanders (NYC City Center Dance, Broadway, Former dancer with Memphis Ballet) and Victoria Jaenson (former dancer at Charlotte Ballet & BTC). Dancers from Hartt Dance Division and the New London High School Multi-Magnet Campus join us through our community program.

Don’t SNOOZE and join us in this magical fairytale!
