San Diego Civic Youth Ballet (SDCYB), founded in 1945 and celebrating its 70th Anniversary as the resident classical ballet school in Balboa Park, presents the 7 th Annual Fairy Tales in the Park. This whimsical, interactive dance event engages both young audiences and families, introducing them to the art of ballet through familiar stories they know and love. Performances are 1 and 4 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, August 15 and 16 at the Casa del Prado Theater in Balboa Park at 1800 Village Place.

The show features excerpts from classic fairytales narrated by a professional storyteller and interpreted through dance. Professional sets, costumes, and lighting bring the stories to life on stage, while an enchanted forest theatre lobby and free outdoor activities in Fairy Tale Village enrich the interactive experience.

This year’s stories include “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “The Sleeping Beauty,” “The Firebird” and “Copp é lia.” Directed by SDCYB Artistic Director Danika Pramik-Holdaway, all proceeds from this event benefit SDCYB’s fund for scholarship families.

Tickets are available at www.sdcyb.org or by calling 619-233-3060.
