Its season 37 for the Atlantic City Ballet and the dancing continues with monthly performances at Caesars Circus Maximus Theater starting in September. The company will open the season with an encore performance of Cinderella at Caesars. The Fall/Winter Season will include fan favorite, Dracula and the yearly holiday traditions of It’s A Shore Holiday and The Nutcracker. The Spring Season will see Papa & Sinatra returning to the repertory after a long absence along with Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo and Juliet. The company will also be on the road with stops at The Strand Theater, Stockton PAC and Stafford Township Arts Center (STAC).
To celebrate the 37 year tradition of the ballet, a Gala Opening Brunch will take place September 22, 2019 at Nero’s and Betty’s Backroom at Caesars. The Cinderella themed event will feature a complimentary cocktail, gourmet experience and a ticket to the season opener, Cinderella. Tickets can be purchased online or by mail. “37 years is a big accomplishment for any arts organization but for a ballet company it’s a great achievement. This is our 5th year being back in the city and the support from the Atlantic City community has been wonderful. Our audiences have increased with every year and our national exposure has spread all the way to the west coast” stated Founding Artistic Director, Phyllis Papa. Once again this year, AC residents will have the opportunity to see any performance for $15 and as part of the company’s Everyday Dance Initiative, the company is also offering schools a student group price of $5 with groups of 10 or more. Free tickets to educators are also available when they accompany their students.
