Wilton Dance Studio’s 2016 Spring Show will showcase classical to contemporary performances on Sunday, June 12 at 1 and 4:30 p.m. at the Clune Center for the Arts at Wilton High School, 395 Danbury Road.
Following its traditional format, the Spring Show has three acts that highlight the various styles of dance taught by the studio. Act One is the classical ballet The Firebird, based on music by Igor Stravinsky. The story follows a Russian fairytale about a prince who captures the magical Firebird. In return for her freedom, the Firebird offers the prince a feather he can use to summon her should he need help. The prince’s adventures take him to an enchanted castle where he meets a beautiful princess held captive by an evil sorceress. Ivan and the Firebird together free the princess and her fellow captives and vanquish the sorceress.
