Footworks Youth Ballet Presents "Swan Lake" in Oxnard on June 3-4

FOOTWORKS YOUTH BALLET presents for the first time Tchaikovsky’s famous classical ballet Swan Lake in two full-length performances at the Oxnard Performing Arts Center. A free family educational lecture and story time will begin one hour prior to the performance time.

Come join Footworks Youth Ballet for its full-length performance of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake. The tragic love story is about Odette, a princess who has been cursed by an evil sorcerer. During the day she must swim as a swan in a lake of tears, but at night she becomes the beautiful princess in human form. The spell can only be broken by a prince who swears his eternal love for her.

Come see the story unfold with Princess Odette, Prince Siegfried, the evil Rothbart and his daughter Odile. It is sure to dazzle audiences with its fresh choreography, colorful costumes and professional sets. In keeping with the mission of Footworks, principal roles are often danced by student dancers, giving young artists opportunities not found elsewhere. Matinees are offered on both regular performance days (June 3rd and 4th at 2 p.m.).
