Fly through a starlit London night and dive headfirst into a magical adventure in Neverland in Ballet Arts of Jackson’s Peter Pan. This ballet is filled with pixie dust and all your favorite characters, from Tinkerbell to the Lost Boys, to Captain Hook and his swashbuckling pirates. With all of its energy and humor, Peter Pan will delight the child in us all.
“Our dancers have been preparing for this performance since the beginning of January and they are thrilled to share what they’ve learned and accomplished with a live audience.” said Caroline Meinert, Artistic Director Ballet Arts. “Being able to bring professional quality ballets to the stage in West Tennessee is a privilege we do not take lightly. We’ve learned from past artists, that it’s often at events like this that a child’s heart is inspired to dream for more. Our hope is that through our hard work, we can inspire you to dream bigger, too.”
