An evening and an afternoon certain to romance any lover of live music and dance, enhanced by poetry, song and story. An elegant event for couples and families.

Open yourself to the world of the Snow Queen as she reverses an old tragedy and brings tears of joy to an entire village.
Brought to life by the creative vision of the company’s Artistic Director and choreographer, Aerin Holt, the Snow Queen ballet is presented complete with brilliant lighting and set design, custom hand sewn costumes, and an original moving musical score by Randall Michael Tobin.
Featuring an integrated cast of professional career dancers, highly trained youth company talent and community performers, with an extraordinary blend of aerial arts, gymnastics and a rich variety of classical ballet and contemporary dance that spin the emotional story to its surprising and delightful conclusion.

Supported by the efforts of hundreds of community volunteers, the Snow Queen, now in its 20th season, has become the newest ballet tradition.
