Ballet instructors and advanced students will showcase their original choreography in this family-oriented collage of dance styles.

The Littlest Matryoshka is an original children’s ballet based on a children’s book by Massachusetts author Corinne Demas Bliss that describes the adventures of the smallest doll of a Russian Matryoshka doll set who becomes separated from her sisters. The ballet features choreography by New Bedford Ballet artistic director Rebecca Waskiel-Marchesseault and instructors James Brown and Alivia Cram.

The program also premieres The Music Box, an original classical ballet piece choreographed by Erin Petitjean Allen. A variety of original modern and contemporary dance pieces choreographed and performed by New Bedford Ballet advanced students under the direction of James Brown will also be included.

Tickets are $10 adults or $5 for seniors, students, and children. All proceeds support the New Bedford Ballet, a non-profit organization with the mission of providing classical ballet training for children and adults, granting scholarships, and educating the community in the value of the performing arts.

On-site registration for the 2011-2012 season will take place August 1 to 4 from 3:30 to 7:30pm. For more information, contact the New Bedford Ballet at 508.993.1387 or visit
