The Little Mermaid

We performed our original full-length ballet, The Little Mermaid, for an audience of special needs children and adults at no charge at the Carolina Theatre. We provided a “friendly” platform for over 250 individuals with special needs affording them the opportunity to attend the ballet; an experience that most would not have been able to attend. 

Our two performances had dancers and actors from ages ranged from 3 years old - 52 years old and maintained our number of performers-of-color.
