Don't miss Princess Scargo, an original ballet performance choreographed by associate director of dance education Melanie Szucs. The performance will also include excerpts from the classic Swan Lake.

Princess Scargo is the touching story of a young Native American girl who gives up a precious birthday gift in order to save her village. This enchanting adaptation, based on a popular Native American legend, embodies the true spirit of selflessness. Perfect for all ages!
