A Charlie Brown Christmas Ballet
Friday, December 16, 7:30pm

Ballet 180 presents A Charlie Brown Christmas, an original ballet that sweeps audiences off their feet with lively characters that dance to the sounds of Vince Guaraldi’s timeless soundtrack. This fun, jazzy ballet captivates fans of all ages. The ballet is directed and choreographed by Kelly Murray Farrell and stars guest artist Daniel Mayo of BalletX alongside Ballet 180 company members and Student Company dancers ages 7-18.
The Holiday production provides a fresh spin on the true reason for the season: giving of one’s self to others. This theme echoes the dance company’s mission of enriching lives through high-quality artistry and service to society. Ballet 180 is bringing that mission to life, both on stage and in the community. In addition to the performance, Ballet 180 is taking action by making and donating warm blankets to Project Linus. Project Linus provides love, a sense of security, and warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans.
