by BWW News Desk - November 28, 2014

This Thanksgiving weekend the Atlantic City Ballet will be bringing back It's A Shore Holiday to help kick off the holiday season. It's A Shore Holiday blends classical and contemporary dance set to beloved holiday tunes. This "Radio City-esque" review will feature the AC Ballet Professional company along with live singers and the second appearance this season by the AC Ballet Ensemble, a six piece band. Along with creating the AC Ballet Ensemble under the direction of Musical Director, Paul LoPresti, the ballet's successful partnership with the Garden State Philharmonic will continue for a 3rd season with this year's performances of The Nutcracker. But Ms. Papa points out, "This "ballet" is more of a review as there is no storyline so it is very different from The Nutcracker" says Phyllis Papa, AC Ballet's Artistic Director. "It really showcases the company's versatility because there is all forms of dance incorporated throughout the show". This particular program had it's premier last season and was such a hit, that the company thought it would be a great way to start the holidays. Appropriate for the entire family, there is something for everyone including dancing snowmen, chipmunks and dancing soldiers who perform their entire routine on pointe. (more...)
