The Steadfast Tin Soldier, A Story Ballet
December 10, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Dance Fremont presents the 28th annual production of The Steadfast Tin Soldier, A Story Ballet. Join us for a holiday extravaganza that delights all ages with a tender retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale.
The ballet includes the work of a number of local visual artists and features the talented youth program dancers of Dance Fremont. Enjoyable for all ages, its length of 1 hour and 15 minutes makes it a perfect introduction to the theater for young audience members! Colorfully hand-tailored costumes, locally designed and hand-painted scenery, a cast of fifty young dancers, and an ensemble of musicians come together to present this charming holiday dance event.
Enjoy original choreography by Vivian Little, director emerita of Dance Fremont with music and lyrics by composer Kathleen Mills, who conducts the live The Steadfast Tin Soldier Ensemble. Signing Exact English (SEE) has been incorporated into the choreography to make this performance accessible for those hard of hearing. The show’s content is delightful and appropriate for all ages. Masks are encouraged but not required.
