Experience the magic of Cinderella with Russian Ballet Orlando at the Polk Theatre

Cinderella Russian Ballet Orlando Lakeland Florida

This spring, your family can join Cinderella and Prince Charming at the Ball as you experience the magic of Cinderella at the historic Polk Theatre in Lakeland.

This stunning ballet performance includes all of your favorite {and not-so-favorite} Cinderella characters! You’ll laugh as the Evil Stepmother and Stepsisters rouse the stage with their unsuitable and excessive behavior. In the midst of all their drama, you’ll watch the magic unfold as the Fairy Godmother turns Cinderella into a princess. Along the way, Cinderella finds happiness with her Prince Charming, they dance their final dance and live happily ever after.

Cinderella will be performed by the students and principal dancers from Russian Ballet Orlando, a premier ballet school in Central Florida. Adults and children alike will enjoy this performance featuring a favorite classic story, talented dancers, as well as kids from ages 5 and up. Girls and boys will love seeing other children their same age performing on the stage.

Russian Ballet Orlando performs 20-30 shows each year across Florida. They wowed local audiences in December with two sold-out performances of The Nutcracker, and are back this spring with another favorite – Cinderella!

This article and all giveaways are sponsored by Russian Ballet Orlando.

More about Russian Ballet Orlando

Russian Ballet Orlando is a Pre-Professional Performing Arts company. They train students in the Russian “Vaganova” method, with many who go on to become professional dancers. Their ballet students have the opportunity to perform on stage throughout the year, providing real-world training experiences with a focus only on ballet and point.

Russian Ballet Orlando has a unique Polk County connection… in the fall of 1996, Vadim Fedotov, Principal Dancer of the National Theater of Ukraine, came to the US temporarily and accepted an offer to choreograph a 30 minute Nutcracker on Ice at Cypress Gardens in Winter Haven, Florida. He was offered a resident position with Orlando Ballet and went on to open Russian Ballet Orlando in 2000. His daughter, Katerina Fedotova, is now Artistic Director and President. It all started with The Nutcracker here in Polk County!

Visit the Russian Ballet Orlando website to learn more about their unique history or their dance programs. Future shows at the Polk Theatre include Mermaid in June and Swan Lake in July, and we look forward to enjoying Russian Ballet Orlando performances here in Lakeland.
