Alice the Ballet features 35 dancers ages eight to 18 from the conservatory’s award-winning School of Dance, including senior students from the professional program dancing the lead roles.

This adaptation, filled with elaborate costumes, outlandish characters and vivid sets, combines elements of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. The ballet is set to the score of Edvard Grieg.

The School of Dance’s annual children’s production provides students and the community with a rare opportunity to experience a full-scale classical ballet.

Children of all ages are welcome to attend a pre-show Alice the Ballet craft event at 12:30 p.m. in the lobby of Spatz theatre. 

During intermissions the audience will be able to have posters signed and photos taken with the dancers from the ballet.
