The final result is a "signature style" which crosses over the full range of musical genres.

Spinning the words "Some Pig" in her web, Charlotte weaves a solution which not only makes Wilbur a prize pig, but ensures his place on the farm forever. This treasured tale, featuring mad-cap and endearing farm animals, explores bravery, selfless love, and the true meaning of friendship.

James Sewell Ballet

James Sewell Ballet

Wednesday, May 4 | 7:30pm
Reif Center, Wilcox Theater
Tickets: Adults $20, Seniors $18, Students $10

James Sewell Ballet is more than a contemporary ballet company. More so, they are a chamber dance troupe that combines the elegance of classical ballet, the freedom of modern dance, and the can-do spirit of vaudeville. Their unique blend of talent, chutzpah, physicality and humor transcends all stereotypes of the classical art form. This spring they present James Sewell’s “Band It,” set to the driving rhythms of American band music, excerpts from Nashville Ballet Artistic Director Paul Vasterling’s “Seasons,” and a reprisal of Sewell’s playful “Chopin Studies.”
