Ballet Premiere: 12 Dancing Princesses

Introducing the USA premiere of the two-act Ballet “12 Dancing Princesses“. On stage in La Jolla in May 2019. The choreography was conceived¬†by Ms. Egle Spokaite and Z. Baikstyte (Lithuania) specifically to engage the youngest students, who typically do not get to participate much in ballet stagings.

The plot loosely follows the brother Grimms’ tale:

“Twelve princesses, each more beautiful than the last, sleep in twelve beds in the same room. Every night, their doors are securely locked by their father. But in the morning, their dancing shoes are found to be worn through as if they had been dancing all night. The king, perplexed, asks his daughters to explain, but they refuse. The king then promises his kingdom and each daughter to any man who can discover the princesses’ midnight secret within three days and three nights, but those who fail within the set time limit will be sentenced to death.”
