BalletFleming’s Alice in Wonderland at the Painted Bride Arts CenterMar 19th, 2013 | By Steven Weisz | Category: In The Spotlight
BalletFleming, together with dancers from the Philadelphia area and the Tricia Sloan Dance School, presents an original ballet adventure choreographed by former New York City Ballet dancer and world-acclaimed choreographer Christopher Fleming. Follow Alice down the rabbit hole as she meets the weird and wonderful characters of Wonderland – have tea with the Mad Hatter, play treacherous croquet with the Queen of Hearts and meet a White Rabbit who leads her all the way!
Featuring three performances at the Painted Bride Arts Center in Philadelphia, PA, Alice in Wonderland is the first event in a new partnership between this venue and BalletFleming. Christopher Fleming goe on to state, I am “thrilled to partner with the Painted Bride to expand the BalletFleming to a whole new audience in and around the Philadelphia area. While we have worked with the Tricia Sloan Dance School for some time, most recently in December’s performances of The Nutcracker at the Scottish Rite, this new partnership will allow us to continue to bring new, exciting works to one of the area’s best and most beloved theatres.”
Performances are Saturday, May 18 at 4:00pm and May 19 at 1:00pm and 5:00pm. Tickets are $25 each, available through the Company’s website: www.balletfleming.org or by calling the Studio: 215-454-2858. The Painted Bride Arts Center is located at 230 Vine St in Philadelphia, PA.
The goal of BalletFleming is to inspire, engage, entertain and educate the public through the works of its Artistic Director, Christopher Fleming. Established in 2010, the company is guided by this purpose in its performances, teaching, outreach activities and commitment to the community. In creating works by choreographer, writer and director Christopher Fleming, we will explore innovative approaches to storytelling, musical theatre and symphonic expositions. By drawing upon the emotional and artistic inspirations of movement, music and drama to bring that to life, we produce dance that is visually striking, innately musical and inherent to the human condition and our deepest of realms of expression.
