Unique Selling Point
The show is entertaining and not too long as a full length ballet. It is based on the story that everyone knows - both young and old, celebrating classical ballet at the highest level of artistic and technical skill whilst immersed in a well know fairy tale story. Our experience with this show is that everyone who has seen it has loved it - especially for the boys too.
promo clips, posters, images, flyers, community engagement opportunities for local ballet school students to audition and be involved in a professional production.
Our community engagement is very successful - we travel around regional and city areas to audition aspiring ballet students - boys and girls ages 10years to 17years for a number of roles and performing opportunities within the production. This has proven to build audiences to sold out season status.
