This is a great ballet, newly choreographed for the 2009 Christmas season by Clinton and Carrie Rothwell. The kids who danced in it last year had a blast. The coveted part for this ballet seems to be that of the little dog that the Grinch used so badly. Victoria will be a Who again this year, a part she greatly enjoyed dancing last year.
This is only the second time that this ballet has been performed in Huntsville, and as far as I know right now it will be the last. Do not put off going because you think you can see it next year. Sadly, the Rothwells are moving back to California and Ballet Huntsville/ACA will no longer exist. That means that you’ll need to take something else off your calendar that you know will happen again next year and come watch this lively and fun performance in the wonderful facility at Trinity. You’ll laugh quite a bit, and you might just cry a little, and you’ll be so glad you made this one of the to-dos on your list this holiday season.
