Ballet Ariel returns to the PACE Center in  April for its first live performances of the year with Cinderella.

But in the end, it is the fair and lovely Cinderella who wins the heart of the  Prince. Performed to Sergei Prokofiev’s captivating score. Ballet Ariel’s talented team of Director Ilena Norton’s and Gregory Gonzales’ original choreography is a dynamic post-modern  classic gem. With Ballet Ariel dancers Jennifer Kuhn as Cinderella and Yoshiko Brunson as the  Fairy Godmother.
