The St. Petersburg Ballet Company presents their annual Spring Dance Concert.

In this show you will see the first release of brand new choreography by Michelle Kuusela and Marsha Wilson, exploring the beauty of friendship, sisterhood, and love. These heart-touching pieces are mesmerizing incarnations of emotions that dance is able to capture in art form. 

Our concert features everything from contemporary ensembles and pas de deux, to the magical story of Cinderella by Suzanne Pomeranzeff, to the classical ballet Paquita. Cinderella tells a creative story that children and adults alike can appreciate, and Paquita is a professionally set classic, with a full corps de ballet and pas de deux, featuring many graceful variations. This is a performance enjoyable for all, with something for the child-like wonder, the music enthusiast, and the lover of dance. 

The St. Petersburg Ballet Company is the official company-in-residence at The Academy of Ballet Arts (a 501(c)3 Nonprofit).
