Illinois Youth Dance Theater's The Little Mermaid
A classic children's tale gets cast into the capable young hands of dancers ages 4–18, selected from the Center for Ballroom & Dance's Illinois Youth Dance Theater and joined by professional guests including Ricardo Santos and Caitlin Sullivan. An ensemble of dozens sets the stage aswim with vibrant sea life, from the enormous claws and antennae of a lobster trio to spooky marine phantoms to the title character herself, a sprightly, sea-bound lass who yearns for the human legs she needs to attract her beloved prince and complete the other two parts of a triathlon. In gossamer costumes, the dancers bring the story to life with movement, props, smoke, aerial acrobatics, and an ocean bluff upon which a violinist plays.
