Cinderella: the Alaskan Ballet
Pulse Dance Company proudly unveils its grandest production to date: Cinderella, the all-Alaskan contemporary ballet.
The show is rich in unique and vibrant costuming, and scenic design is curious and entrancing with set and projections by designer Ruby Kennell. The original ballet score by Sergei Prokofiev guides the story with its simultaneously dark, quirky and fun musicality.
Artistic director and principal choreographer Stephanie Wonchala presents an evening-length, dynamic production featuring a colorful mix of comedy, dance, and magic. Renowned guest choreographers include Alice Bassler Sullivan, Niki Maple, and Becky Kendall, with guest appearances by Multi-Verse b-boy crew and internationally-renowned Turkish Romani dancer Rabia Duddy.
The story is known but the telling is new, featuring terrible stepsisters, a sharply wicked stepmother, magical creatures of the witching hour, hilarious cobblers and artistic twists.
Cinderella serves as the embodiment of the local company's rise from small dance troupe in 2010 to a leading Anchorage dance organization in 2015.
The large and talented cast of both company and community dancers bring to life a theatrical experience that will simultaneously delight the young and young at heart.
