Annual All School Performance

These are unprecedented times but City Ballet School is committed to continue on with its annual school performance to showcase students enrolled in the Pre/Kinder Ballet level through the pre-professional Ballet 6 level. City Ballet School, under the direction of Steven and Elizabeth Wistrich, have prepared a presentation titled The Enchanted Kingdom while still keeping dancers safe in their class cohorts and wearing masks. Dance is a performing art and it is important for students to have the experience of learning choreography for a presentation. The ballet pieces will be specially created by Elizabeth Wistrich and City Ballet School staff.

Students in Pre/Kinder Ballet through Ballet 3 will learn their dance presentations in their regularly scheduled classes. Ballet 4 thru Ballet 6 students will rehearse on Saturdays between the hours of 2pm to 6pm beginning February 20, 2021. There will be no auditions – but students must sign up by February 15, 2021.

A DRESS REHEARSAL for each level (in their cohort) will be on Saturday, May 15, 2021 during the hours of 12pm – 6pm and FILMING of each level (in their cohort) on Sunday, May 16 from 12pm – 6pm at The Joan B. Kroc Theatre.

To be included in The Enchanted Kingdom, each student must return a commitment form with their performance fee and costume deposit by February 15, 2021 for costumes to be ordered.
