Full details are available on the event website.

2. Alice the Ballet, presented by the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts Alice the Ballet combines elements of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. This adaptation of Alice can be described as a coming of age story where Alice finds herself caught in that space between child-hood and finding her place in the adult world. Alice the Ballet is a 90 minute performance and will be presented at the Bella Rose Theatre!

3. Taking time out of their international touring schedule, Augusto Enriquez, Jorge Chicoy and Avi Garcia, have chosen to come to Nova Scotia from Cuba to participate in the Los Primos 14th Dance for All Ages! And the big news for the dance this year is that Paul Barrett’s 19 piece Back Alley Big Band will be the mambo band for Augusto Enriquez! This is going to be an experience that our community will never forget!
