Cape Cod Dance Center is celebrating its 30th anniversary with the classic ballet, “Sleeping Beauty,” Saturday at 2 and 7 PM at Bourne High School, 75 Waterhouse Street.
The production will feature a mixed cast of students currently enrolled in the school’s ballet program, professional guest dancers from Montreal and Rhode Island, and local performers. Tickets can be purchased at www.capecoddancecenter.com or at the door the day of the performances.
“Sleeping Beauty” was re-staged and re-choreographed after Marius Petipa by studio owner Eveline Carle.
This year’s performance will showcase three of the studio’s graduating students who have danced with the Cape Cod Dance Center since age 3. They are: Samantha Landry, daughter of Kevin and Amy Landry of North Falmouth, in the role of Princess Aurora; Kayla Scarpellini, daughter of Bryan and Sherri Scarpellini of Falmouth, in the role of the Blue Bird; and Isabelle LeBoeuf, daughter of Chris and Kim LeBoeuf of Falmouth, as the Lilac Fairy.
The students will be performing alongside guest dancers Felix Lavoie and Shane Farrell.
The role of Carabosse, also known as Maleficent in the adapted version of the story, will be danced by Antonia Stephens, who earned a dance degree at Bennington College and currently teaches and performs in various venues on the Cape in modern dance and contact improvisation.
On Father’s Day Cape Cod Dance Center will present a showcase of lyrical, jazz, tap, hip hop, and contemporary dance in remembrance of influential artists who have recently died. The performance, titled “In Memoriam,” is being co-directed by studio owner Eveline Carle and instructors Kaitlin Scannell and Meghan Carmichael.
