Event description: New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) kicks off the New Year with Keith Michael's "The-Alice-in-Wonderland Follies." The hour-long production is part of the family-friendly Once Upon A Ballet series, which is the ideal introduction to ballet for children ages 3-8.

The high-spirited show with rapid-fire staging and droll humor features an enchanting set by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith and opulent costumes by Sylvia Nolan (resident costume designer for the Metropolitan Opera). "The-Alice-in-Wonderland Follies" recreates a gala at New York City's Palace Theater in 1915 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Lewis Carroll classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland." Set in the electric atmosphere of a vaudeville extravaganza, Keith Michael's choreography incorporates burlesque, soft-shoe, acrobatics, ballroom dance, African juba and, of course, classical on-pointe dancing. The show is sure to enchant your inner child, no matter your age.
