Among them are Amaani Grant (hip hop, contemporary, tap), Katherine DeAcutis (hip hop), and Jenne Vermes (tap and contemporary). Alex Rubio and Christie Woodson, members of professional tap ensemble Noise Complaint, will be performing as well.
Professional ballroom and musical theater dancer and actress Christina Cruz will portray the role of Cinderella’s stepmother. Clay Mitchell, professional ballroom dancer, will be joining her onstage. St. Augustine performers Tommy Bledsoe and Joy D’Elia will play the part of The King and Queen respectively. And, local dancers Annabelle Hucke and Jake Karger will be performing as Cinderella and the Prince.
“We are thrilled to tell this beautiful fairytale through the language of dance,” Director Zoika Garcia explained. “And we are very excited to include so many vibrant, contemporary dance styles along with classical ballet! It is exciting for both the audience and the dancers.”
