On the Wings of the Monarch Butterfly

Take flight with our young students as they soar thru a beautiful story rich with Mexican traditions. Inspired by one of our own conservatory dancers and adapted by Lorraine Spiegler, On the Wings of the Monarch Butterfly follows a young girl, Aranza, thru the vibrant and colorful traditions of growing up in Mexico City. Our youngest talents will dance their way through piñatas and picados, hummingbirds, marigolds, and Oyamel fir trees with Princess Erendira by the beautiful Lake Zirahuen culminating in a delightful and enchanting story of familial love, life, and Mexican traditions.
