Be there from the start! Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet launches a new season of creativity and expression in dance, transporting you to places of wonder. It all begins with breadcrumbs and a wicked witch when the exciting adventures of Alan Hineline’s Hansel and Gretel leave you fully satisfied in its delightful fairy-tale ending! Time is gently suspended as you immerse yourself in the magical moments of the holiday classic George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®. The dancers of CPYB will showcase their comedic abilities, bringing the spirited plot of Shakespeare’s famously funny A Midsummer Night’s Dream to the stage. The season closes in a four-day festival of new works and audience favorites in June Series, the longstanding springtime tradition evoking human emotion through movement. Purchase your tickets today and take part of the wonder of great moments at the ballet.
“These works transcend generations. These young artists send your spirits soaring — creating new worlds, turning movement into magic. Together Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet will remind you that life is meant to contain an abundance of adventure, beauty and joy!”
