Read about our show in The Cary Citizen!
This year’s Spring Gala was gorgeous and colorful as the company presented the story ballet Tales of an Athenian Forest (Based on A Midsummer Night’s Dream). A fantasy forest is filled with magical creatures in a mythical kingdom. A lovers twist among Athenian humans and Queen Fairy Titania are mysteriously influenced by mischievous Puck with his mishap spells.
Our faculty was beaming with pride after each performance. Ms. Iler’s words…
I am so very proud of each and every dancer in our Spring Gala—you epitomized poise, beauty, technique, artistry, and grace this evening! A very special thank you to the fairies who were especially beautiful this evening—your hard work paid off! Bravo!!
and our Director Suzanne Laliberte Clark wrote

Opening the show was Tom Shoemaker‘s Caravan choreography presented at the Festival of NC Dance in Winston-Salem, NC. A contemporary piece with stellar movement, sometimes seemingly simple but yet riveting.
Special thanks to all the parents who help make this show happen, from volunteering time backstage to sewing costumes we are in your debt! Also, special thanks to Brooke Meyer for capturing moments onstage and off.
And lastly, farewell to our graduating high school Seniors! We will miss you!
