Children's Concert Society presents Verb Ballets new story ballet Mowgli's Jungle Adventures choreographed by Associate Artistic Director Richard Dickinson. The ballet includes the professional dancers of Verb Ballets plus a special guest appearance by Josie Wolfenbarger with A Special Wish. The updated revival is based on Rudyard Kipling's classic tale of an Indian boy abandoned by his parents and raised by a pack of wolves, this exciting new work utilizes ballet to tell the story of Mowgli and his wild adventures. Verb Ballets' new story ballet integrates a unique blend of dance styles and evocative instrumental music to transcend barriers to illustrate the value of acceptance and importance of community. The story ballet will feature new costumes by Janet Bolick and original lighting design by Ben Gantose. The story has a special appearance from Shri Kalaa Mandir-Center for Indian Performing Arts with traditional Indian dancers to feature the characters of Kaa, the python and Hathi, the elephants. 

Cost is $5 per student
