The Little Mermaid – Ballet Performance

April 11 April 14

Aronoff Center for the Arts

$20 – $60

Dive into adventure with the Cincinnati Ballet Family Series: The Little Mermaid from April 11 to 14 at the Aronoff Center for the Arts.

The Little Mermaid is an hour-long, narrated production perfect for families and dance lovers of all ages. Join dancers and students from the Otto M. Budig Academy for an adventure sure to delight the whole family.

The classic Hans Christian Anderson tale is the beloved story of a brave, kind mermaid, a devious sea witch, and a handsome prince. The stage will be transformed into an ocean filled with a cast of colorful characters, including angelfish, sharks, crabs, and, of course, mermaids! The Little Mermaid will be an interactive dance performance created with children in mind.

At The Little Mermaid, the patron experience starts at the door. The Aronoff Center for the Arts will become the Mermaid’s Cove, with free sea-themed games, drop-in dance classes, crafts, photos, and other activities.

For the following performances, the lead characters of The Little Mermaid will be played by African American female dancers:

  • Friday, April 12 at 10:30 a.m.,
