Hello! Already that time to start the thought process for next year's recital...! Last year, our ballet theme was "Storybook Forest". Our upper level dancers were all the lead characters (Snow White, Cinderella, Alice, Goldilocks, Sleeping Beauty, etc) and they danced with the younger classes (for example Goldilocks was a part of the "bears"). We even had a tornado section that lead into the "Wizard of Oz".

Here's what I've come up with so far for next year:

Ballet Circus
Marry Poppins
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Disney Theme
Secret Garden

Any/all suggestions welcome! Thank you!

The Little Mermaid! You can have some of your younger dancers be fish and stuff. :)

Well, there were two that popped into my head.

1. Candy Land - Each would be acting out the parts of various treats. Ten there could be Queen of the Candy Canes or Lollipops, etc.

2. The Magic Toyshop - Pretty self explanatory. Each would play the part of a toy coming to life.
