Opening the 2012 ‐ 2013 Children’s Series, The Twelve Days of Christmas follows in the footprints of past Children’s Series Productions such as Steadfast Tin Soldier, Cinderella and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas . The all new creation by Resident Choreographer Jill Eathorne Bahr is centered around an English Christmas carol that enumerates a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. The music pastiche itself is an arrangement of English carols, popular French airs, and utilizes compositions by composers Rachmaninoff, Gottschalk, Herold, as well as traditional jazz orchestrations of familiar Christmas carols and African Drumming.
The production is geared for children ages 3 ‐10 years old. It is one hour of dance in length plus one intermission. Dress your child in costume or in their holiday best to have a photo opportunity with the professional dancers in the production. The production gives 16 students from the CBT Center of Dance Education the opportunity to work alongside the professional dancers of Charleston Ballet Theatre the ballet’s main character is advanced CBT Center for Dance Educations student, Jacy Fletcher who plays the role of the Partridge in Pear Tree.
