Each year Maywood Fine Arts’ Classical Ballet for New Audiences (CBNA) brings one of the great classical ballets to life! Artistic directors Heidi Renteria and Taiyana Shurn create a concise version of the ballet that is child friendly yet includes original music and choreography, which fully exhibits this exquisite art form.  

Swan Lake is a romantic fable of ill-fated passion, dreamlike transformation and ultimate forgiveness  set to Tchaikovsky’s glorious score.  With breathtaking choreography and visually magnificent costumes evoking a Renaissance court, the fabled lake of swans rises into view, inspiring awe for generations to come.

Principal dancers Vivi Parecki and Jennifer Holoubek will keep you on your toes as the story unfolds. Vivi has graced the stage of Ballet Nebraska and Jennifer the stage at Ballet Tucson.

Graduating seniors Alyssa Rodriguez, Ta’jae Pickett and Ryan Cargie will be performing alongside an all-star cast of Stairway of the Stars ballet students. Dance dad Roberto Renteria in the role of Von Rothbart will add to the magic of this romantic ballet.
