The Sleeping Beauty

Written by Tchaikovsky in 1889, Sleeping Beauty has stood as one of ballet’s most beloved pieces since its glowing debut at St. Petersburg’s Imperial Maryinsky Theatre. The traditional tale of a princess cursed to sleep for 100 years by a malevolent fairy comes alive with choreography adapted from legendary ballet master Marius Petipa, whose powerful and technically dazzling choreography has remained the standard for more than a century. Notable moments include the third act wedding between the awoken princess and her valiant suitor.

Written with fervor after the lukewarm reception of his Swan Lake, Tchaikovsky’s score is best known for its use in Walt Disney’s 1958 adaptation of the tale. Taking full advantage of his evocative melodic powers, Tchaikovsky opens the ballet with a thunderous introduction that features whirling strings blasting in syncopated rhythms while trumpet fanfares blare through the auditorium, letting monarchs waiting in the wings know it’s time to take their seat. Finally, the explosive energy gives way to tinkling harp and a delicate woodwind melody that segues into the show’s idyllic beginning.

Stevan Grebel Center for Dance

Students at the Stevan Grebel Center for Dance become metaphorical cousins of such legends as Mikhail Baryshnikov and Rudolf Nureyev. That's because Stevan Grebel, like those shining stars, was taught by none other Alexander Pushkin, the headmaster of the Leningrad Choreographic School from the 1940s through the 1960s. But Grebel goes beyond the ancient dance form—and even beyond the stage itself. Students ages 3 and older can sign up not only for jazz, tap, lyrical, and hip-hop dance classes, but also for supplementary programs that cover forms of creative motion such as ice skating, cheering, gymnastics, and yoga. Classes are grounded in the Vaganova ballet technique, a melding of the graceful French style and the more athletic Italian school.
