Finishing the holiday season, ACB will premiere a completely new full-length holiday production, A Ballet Christmas Carol. It will include a commissioned score by Chase Dobson, ACB's composer-in-residence. Audiences will see the classic Charles Dickens story but with the dance twist of a female Scrooge and the whole story taking place in the dance world: classes, rehearsals and on stage. "It has been so much fun creating the libretto," says Katie Cooper. "The story unfolded with so much ease in the flashbacks of our lives as dancers in the studio and also our choices we all make in love and life that anyone goes through."
