Description

Quinn the Ballerina can hardly believe it's finally performance day. She's playing her first principal role in a production of Sleeping Beauty. Yet, Quinn is also nervous. Can she really dance the challenging steps? Will people believe her as a cursed princess caught in a 100-year spell? Join Quinn as she transforms into Princess Aurora in an exciting retelling of Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty. Now you can relive, or experience for the first time, one of ballet's most acclaimed works as interpreted by a 9 year old.
