The 23-year-old dancer will next perform with the Fellowship Ensemble, Tackling the role of the Evil Queen in the family-friendly performance of “Snow White.” According to Hall, the show stays true to the beloved childhood fairy tale and includes all the familiar roles like the Seven Dwarfs and the Magic Mirror. Hall said she’s enjoyed the entire rehearsal process, finding it especially exciting to tackle the role of the evil Queen because she is not typically cast as the villain.
The best way to introduce young children to the ballet
by Thyra on March 01, 2015
My daughters have never been to a ballet and had a wonderful time. They loved the costumes and the dancing. This was the perfect ballet to introduce to young children. The performances were beautifully executed and the show took the story from beginning to end. Adding a narrator to explain what was happening helped a great deal, rather than a 100 young voices asking mommy what was going on. I highly recommend this particular show to families with young children.
Lovely dancing but $$$

The dancing was lovely! Especially enjoyed the king's court pas de deux dancers, evil queen, and trees. It was pretty expensive for my family of four to attend . . . my only complaint! Other than that, a perfect way to introduce a story ballet to my children!

Took both granddaughters. They loved it. Snow White was as promised, just long enough to hold the attention of young ones. Great experience and the dancers were wonderful.

I took my 5 year old granddaughter to the performance. We both enjoyed it very much. All of the dancers were exceptional. I bring one or two of my granddaughters every year and the Atlanta Ballet never disappoints. We will be back next year.
Choreographer Bruce Wells has created over 50 ballets. A native of Tacoma, Washington, Mr. Wells’ dance career began as a student at the School of American Ballet. He joined New York City Ballet, under the direction of George Balanchine, in 1967 and was promoted to soloist in 1969. His choreographic career began in workshops that Mr. Balanchine coached in the early 1970’s. From there he became resident choreographer for the Connecticut Ballet from 1975 to 1979, choreographing his first full-length ballet, Coppélia, in 1976. From 1979 to 1989 Mr. Wells was resident choreographer for the Boston Ballet, where he created over 20 works that included The Nutcracker,La Fée Mal Gardée, Swan Lake, and his highly acclaimed A Midsummer Night’s Dream. (From 1984 to 1989, he was also associate artistic director for the company.) He then joined Pittsburgh Ballet Theater for six seasons as resident choreographer, creating new productions of Romeo & Juliet, Firebird, and The Great Gatsby among others. Mr. Wells has choreographed works for The Australian Ballet, Dance Theater of Harlem, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Atlanta Ballet, Milwaukee Ballet, Ballet Chicago, Cincinnati Ballet, The Nashville Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theater, Jacob’s Pillow, and many more. For the past seventeen years, Mr. Wells has been on the faculty of Pacific Northwest Ballet School. Mr. Wells’ first children’s ballet for PNBS was Snow White in 2001, followed by Hansel & Gretel in 2006, and Pinocchio in 2009. A frequent guest teacher and freelance choreographer, his most recent assignment was as guest teacher for the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam.
