Each season, we cast and stage an original ballet written and choreographed especially for that season’s dancers. On May 26-27, 2017, we are proud to present “A Magical Lesson” on the stage of the Danville High School auditorium. Tickets go on sale May 1!

The Story of A Magical Lesson

A Magical Lesson follows the story of three sisters and their brush with magic…

One day, while playing the park with their friends, the sisters learn that the circus has come to town. They are desperate to go and head home to ask their mother. Two of the girls, however, have been misbehaving so badly lately that their mother forbids them to attend.

What they don’t know is that a mysterious sorceress has been planning to teach the two naughty girls a lesson. She casts a spell that allows them to go to the circus with their friends and, with the help of her apprentices, puts her plans into motion.

The circus performers put on a wonderful show with many fascinating acts that all of the village children enjoy. However, the two naughty sisters still manage to get into all kinds of mischief and trouble. Will they ever learn their magical lesson?

Attendance

Our performance includes parts written and choreographed for your dancer. Since we are learning our dances, attendance is extremely important for the students and their classmates. Please notify the studio if your student must miss classes. Students should also be available for all rehearsals the week before the performance.

Volunteers

Putting on a full-length ballet is only possible with all of our fantastic volunteers. During rehearsals, large scenery and sets must be assembled, backdrops hung and small props created. After the performance, every item from the ballet must be removed from the high school. If you are willing to help during rehearsals, the performance, or with tear-down please email info@thechildrensballet.com.
