We invite you to and your students to a free, fully staged production of The Sleeping Beauty, a ballet performed to the gorgeous music of Tchaikovsky. The Sleeping Beauty provides a wonderful context for studying music, movement, and elements of literature and story-telling, such as narrative, characters, motifs, fairy tales, and oral tradition.

With guest artists and a youth cast from Wissahickon Dance Academy in Germantown, Willard Elementary School, and J.B. Kelly Elementary School, the ballet is performed exclusively for the students of the Philadelphia schools. All educators bringing students to the show will receive a free guide to the ballet with pre- and post-performance activities designed to deepen students’ experience of this living art.
