Jazz up your January with Maine State Ballet in an evening of Broadway-style song and dance for the whole family.

Choreography was created by Emma Davis and Eliot Konzal, Maine State Music Theater performer Glenn Davis, show Director Janet Davis, and Broadway veterans Jonathan and Linda Miele. Performers include the ballet’s dance company members and up-and-coming tap and jazz dancers from the Maine State Ballet School.

Several Maine State Ballet alumni are currently working in film and on Broadway. Sara Esty is performing as Meg in “Phantom of the Opera,” and Tony Award nominee Robyn Hurder is currently starring in “A Beautiful Noise.”
