One of the most awaited events every year during the Christmas program at Altos de Chavón is the ballet presentation from the Elizabeth P. de Zeller ballet academy and this year, Ivonne Zeller (Director of the academy), will present “The greatest show” inspired by the very popular movie musical The Greatest Showman.
The Greatest Showman is a bold and original musical filled with infectious showstopping performances that has captivated all who see it, from the amazing performances to its incredible soundtrack. Inspired by the story of P.T. Barnum, the film follows the visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerizing spectacle. See below a short video from movie. This show by the students of the Elizabeth P. de Zeller ballet academy is one you definitely will not want to miss!
Rehearsals have started, and we’ve seen lots of girls around the amphitheater these days practicing making sure that everything will be perfect for Saturday’s presentation. The founder of the academy Elizabeth P. de Zeller, Tia Eli, started this tradition almost 50 years years ago and it is one that I particularly didn’t miss as a child and even now as a grown up when I bring my son along with me. This presentation is directed by Ivonne Zeller, Tia Eli’s daughter, and showcases all of the effort and passion students in the academy devote to dancing ballet, with a beautiful presentation each December in the Altos de Chavón amphitheater.
Every student in the academy participates in this annual performance, from the adorable toddlers to the most experienced dancers. As every year, this event will benefit the “Hogar de Ancianos Padre Abreu” (Home for the Elderly) highlighting the importance of helping our community.
Tickets will be on sale at the Altos de Chavón amphitheater box office on the day of the event and will also be sold in advance by the students with a cost of RD$300.00 p/p. Don’t miss out on this amazing presentation and help contribute to a great cause, and one of Altos de Chavón’s Christmas traditions!
