Robert Royce and Jesse Tidquist will stage traditional ballet variations from "Sleeping Beauty" and Royce's choreography of the "Garland Waltz." Nan Mann's troupe of younger dancers (age 7-11) will tell the story of "The Ugly Duckling" to music from "Swan Lake." Other selections each evening will feature modern, jazz and tap genres.
