The full-length ballet will be held at West Aurora High School Auditorium, 1201 W. New York Street, Aurora, IL.

Set to Sergei Prokofiev's classic score, Cinderella is an enchanting fantasy full of splendor, humor and magic, choreographed by Altin Naska, new owner and artistic director of Plainfield Dance Academy.
"The fairy tale Cinderella has mesmerized children and adults for hundreds of years because of its themes of kindness and hope," says Naska. "Watching the story come alive through the artistic performances of these talented dancers in elaborate costumes with magical sets will encourage audiences to dream their dreams and offer hope and kindness to those around them."
While Naska has both performed and choreographed for dance companies in Chicago and throughout the world, this is his first time choreographing for the Plainfield Dance Academy. "There is such an abundance of talent and support for the arts in this area and I am looking forward to working with people to create a strong and creative arts scene to serve the community."
