Dance Me A Story: Anne Frank

  • Columbia State Community College 1665 Hampshire Pike Columbia, TN, 38401 United States

Based on the book Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl, this unique, thought-provoking ballet utilizes an actual historical event captured in biographical prose as the basis to promote a much deeper understanding of the use of ballet to not only tell a story artistically, but also creatively convey context and circumstance. Utilizing contemporary choreography, drama, an original musical score and period costuming and props, this ballet offers older students and adults an opportunity to experience the events of this historic period as written by Anne in her diary. This ballet is 45 minutes long and features a question/answer session with the performers for the audience following the performance.
