A Winter’s Dream

From March 31, access free a Google Slide with a recording of IBE’s new original ballet, A Winter’s Dream, and related educational materials and activities.


We invite you and your students to a free virtual performance of A Winter’s Dream, an original ballet by Christina Castro-Tauser, recorded live on December 11, 2021, at Philadelphia’s Teatro Esperanza.

From an enchanted winter forest to the glowing Northern Lights, the ballet takes a magical journey through a world of dance.

Featuring a diverse cast of local youth, community, and professional artists, the ballet also features local professionals who perform traditional dance from other cultures, from salsa to Indonesian and Irish step.

This fully staged ballet is a wonderful context for studying music, movement, and elements of literature and storytelling, such as narrative, characters, and motifs; geography, and science.

Register below to access a Google Slide with the show (45 minutes), guide to the ballet, and pre- and post-performance activities designed to deepen students’ experience.
