United Fine Arts Academy is a new non-profit based in Georgetown and the Cardome is a partner. UFAA’s mission is to boost youth arts opportunities in Georgetown through dance, music and theater. The academy grew out of United Talent Dance’s three-year successful history of presenting annual, original youth ballets each fall. Previous performances included Clara’s Dream: The Nutcracker in One Act in 2014 and 2015 as well as The Little Match Girl in 2016.
This year’s Snow White is an original production choreographed by academy artistic director Angelica South, a 2013 homeschool graduate. The ballet includes 52 dancers ages 4-18 drawn from ballet schools in Scott and Fayette counties. So many dancers auditioned last June that major roles were double cast. The cast has been learning and rehearsing the original choreography since August.
The free Snow White excerpts are part of an outreach to bring ballet and the arts to underserved communities in Central Kentucky. Dancers have shared shows free for the past two seasons with elementary students in Scott County Schools. This year, the company will visit three elementary schools in addition to this performance for private and homeschool students.
Please also come enjoy a full-length public presentation of the Snow White ballet November 9-11 at the Downtown Arts Center in Lexington. Performance times are 7 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings as well as a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday afternoon. Tickets for these shows are $15 each and available at the door or online via www.lexingtonky.gov/about-downtown-arts-center.
Thank you, Carol South, for the great recommendation!
