The Ugly Duckling

Why fit in when you can stand out?

Being different isn’t easy, and it’s hard to fit in when you always stand out. Award-winning choreographer Jimmy Orrante brings to life the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale, The Ugly Duckling, through a whimsical exploration of the joy to be found when you celebrate someone’s “inner swan.” This hour-long dance work, performed by our apprentice company, Ballet Austin II, in our in-house studio theater, is the perfect “starter ballet” for children ages 3–10 and can be partnered with The Nutcracker or Giselle at the Long Center as part of our FAMILY TIME season ticket package.
