Hip Hop Cinderella premiered in the Bay Area on Feb 25th 2017 at the Carlmont Center for the Performing Arts in Belmont. Produced under the auspices of Peninsula Ballet Theater’s 50th Anniversary celebration events. The new production features 17 hip hop artists from The Tribe and Poise’n, joined by dancers from Peninsula Ballet Theatre.
This new take on the fairy-tale classic plays homage to both the tradition of story ballet and the future of dance.
Prokofiev's music still reigns supreme with several new twists and reimagining’s brought to life by choreographers Ale Martinez and Issac ‘Stuck’ Sanders. Co-Founders and directors of The Tribe and Poise’n both Martinez and Sanders have a rich dance and hip hop history.
PBT is thrilled to be presenting the condensed version of Hip Hop Cinderella, perfect for children ages 3 - 8. This show is 45 minutes long and just as magical as the full length. We can't wait to see you in our audience!
