On Friday May 11, the Ocean Academy students were treated to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs A Fairy tale Ballet at Count Basie Theater. This beautiful ballet was performed by the Company of Dance Arts in recognition of the 80th anniversary of the release of the Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The costume and set designs were amazing. The production featured choreography by Yvonne Lamb Scudiery, along with guest artists from the NYC ballet companies. The music by master composers was enjoyed by all.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a story known to young and old, as a ballet the dancers and music expressed the film magically. This excellent performance brought many smiles in the audience as they not only saw the characters from Snow White but also were surprised with many familiar guest performers at the wedding such as Alice and Wonderland, Peter Pan, Little Red Riding Hood, and Goldilocks to name a few. This was a wonderful experience that the students and staff of Ocean Academy will always remember.
