Hyde Park School of Dance marks its 25th anniversary this year with the world premiere of Amira: A Chicago Cinderella Story. A magical, modern twist on the classic Cinderella story-ballet with Prokofiev's beloved score, this adaptation, set in the neighborhood of Hyde Park, tells the tale of a teenage immigrant coming of age as she comes to terms with life in a new country, sampling all it has to offer even as she grapples with all she has left behind. Join Amira as she adjusts to her new school, explores the city, and discovers for herself that for all our differences, some human experiences are shared the world over. Featuring a cast of predominantly youth dancers aged 7 to 18, this 75-minute-long family-friendly production will premiere at the Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts in June of 2018.
