The Fall of the Snow Fairies: A Winter Ballet

Ran December 15-16, 2018
at the Danceworks Studio Theatre

In the land of Foria, the Snow Fairies rest hidden among glimmering snow covered branches, unaware of an ancient evil lurking close by. The Dark Fairies, led by evil King Damien, seek to clip the majestic wings of the Snow Fairies to stop them from sprinkling the land with snow!

When King Damien captures all except the very youngest fairy, Bela, she is guided by the Spirit of Winter, Winter Winds, and the Ice Pixies on a great adventure across unknown lands. The brave group protects one another as they come across many creatures, and much darkness, on their mission to save the Snow Queen, Bela’s family, and the magic of Winter.
