Twin Cities Ballet is excited to present our new original dance film, The Ruby Slippers: A Wizard of Oz Ballet.
Professionally filmed onstage at Ames Center, TCB’s fresh reimagining of the iconic tale features an original adapted story line, musical compilation, and choreography that ingeniously blends ballet, jazz, hip hop, and modern dance styles. Join Dorothy and her friends for this fun and approachable family-friendly event!
Three great opportunities to experience the ballet:
1) Mother’s Day Livestream Fundraising Event: Sunday, May 9 at 2:00pm
This is the premiere of the film! While there is no cost to attend this special livestream event, we are asking and hoping for donations to help support TCB and keep it strong and vibrant. Covid-19 has caused TCB substantial financial harm, and we are so grateful for any and all donations.
2) On-Demand Digital Streaming: May 13–16
We are also offering on-demand streaming of the film Thursday, May 13, through Sunday, May 16. During this time, you can view the film as many times as you like for a nominal one-time fee of just $40 per household.
3) Special VIP Offer to Attend the Filming in Person: May 5–6
TCB is offering a limited number of special VIP passes that will give a unique “behind-the-scenes” look at the filming process for this new, original video production! Become a 2021 sponsor of Twin Cities Ballet at the Director Level or higher ($2500+) on or before May 3, and you can receive a special VIP Pass that permits up to 4 individuals in the same household to view the filming process in person at Ames Center on Wednesday and Thursday, May 5 and 6. A one-of-a-kind opportunity!
