Each year True Impact Performing and Visual Arts hosts "Christmas in Narnia", a delightful holiday ballet that is based on the beloved children’s classic “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” by C.S. Lewis. The ballet features dancing snowflakes, waltzing flowers, sweet treats, and of course a lion and a witch!
This year's production will be held on Friday, December 15 at 9:30 a.m. (school show) and Saturday, December 16 at TBA (evening performance).
Participation is open to the community through class placement (younger students) or auditions for dance company/main roles (age 8 to adult).
Younger children may register for a Narnia class. No audition required. VIsit our schedule page and see classes that are labeled as "Narnia".
