“‘Vampire’s Ball’ is rich in thrills and campiness, with an approachable blend of strong classical dancing alongside edgy, contemporary movement. It’s a fan favorite, but it’s also a fun first introduction for ballet newcomers,” said artistic director, Robert Hill. “We have several fantastic new dancers about to make their debut with Orlando Ballet and audiences will not be disappointed. Backing them up are five incredible Orlando Ballet School dancers that make up the two casts of the children’s dance. I created these roles because our students are performing at such an exceptional level, they deserve the opportunity to gain valuable performance experience alongside our professional company.”
