CAMDEN — On Wednesday, August 10, at 5 p.m., the Camden Public Library will host dancers from Camden’s P2P Dance Center, home of Atlantic Ballet Company, for a free performance of “The Enchanted Storybook.” This original jazz-ballet, created by directors Michele and Heather Cox, gives audiences a glimpse into the fairytale lives of five dancing princesses and their fun-loving companions. The fanciful adventure will be performed in the picturesque Camden Amphitheatre.
The show will feature a super-sized “Once Upon a Time” storybook to transport audiences through stories about Rapunzel, Snow White, Pocahontas, Ariel, and Aurora. As each page is turned, a new landscape unfolds with colorful scenes, setting the stage for each princess and her circle of friends. The “Enchanted Storybook” concludes with a lively finale, which celebrates the lives of these five fairytale favorites.
Dancers will perform in “The Enchanted Storybook” as a culmination of the P2P Dance Center‘s “Dance your Dream” Summer Camp Program. The students participated in ballet, stretch, and floor barre classes, as part of a four to six-week summer dance camp. The dancers have learned hip hop, ballet, jazz, and modern choreography, which they will perform in the upcoming production.
This production is free and open to the public. If you would like to support P2P with their cost to put on the production, please visit: p2pdance.com.
Please bring your own seating.
The rain date for the show is Thursday, August 11.
