A Girl Without Hands

Before My Life Flies By
Choreographer: Katie DeSalvo
The Grimms’ “Tortoise and the Hedgehog” preserved Aesop’s message that those who take life more slowly often come out ahead, a lesson we must remember in this fast-paced society.

(dis)enchanted: Merryweather’s Gift
Choreographer: Denisha V. Powell
In the words of actress Loretta Young, “In my dreams, I could be a princess, and that’s what I was. Like most little girls, I believed nothing less than a prince could make my dreams come true.”

Evil Divas
Choreographer: Quinton Clemons
Vengeance, manipulation, deceit, seduction, rage: Evil has many nuanced faces within fairy tales. But notice that no matter how evil persists, courage, wit, and goodness prevail. Somehow, it gets better.

Choreographer: Amanda Ilic
Kendra hopes to spread a message to her fellow youth that no matter what kinds of challenges you face in life, everything will be alright.

Little Red Cap
Choreographer: Heather Liparota
“My trail wasn't straight, nor was it wide; it wandered where ever I pleased. But the beauty I saw could never be seen from that well-trod path through the trees.” -Marty Rickard

Lost and Found
Choreographer: Erin Gussis
The message of “The Raven” fairy tale could be summed up as, “Find me, and your love will set me free.” It’s a story of intense longing, searching for that something that makes us more complete.
