Join MCD for a family fun performance of our "Spring Showcase and Peter and the Wolf." The story ballet choreographed by Charles Torres, is a captivating 30-minute ballet set to the well know classical music of Sergei Prokofiev. In 1936, Prokofiev composed Peter and the Wolf to introduce children to the different instruments of the orchestra. The ballet introduces the plot and colorful characters through expressive movements to share the wisdom of courage. Students experience storytelling through the interaction of narrative, music, and dance, to gain an understanding of how character and plot are communicated across multiple art forms.
Charles Torres teaches Levels 3,4,5.
Charles received full scholarships to San Francisco Ballet School, School of American Ballet, and others as well as earning his Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s College. He is currently a ballet master/coach in demand throughout the country.
