Pierrot & Pirouette

For K-12. This show is a full-length dance theater piece about the relationship between a frustrated ballerina and a successful, but lonely street performer. It is a riveting story filled with surprises, laughs and tender moments.

Pierrot & Pirouette ran Off Broadway at The Ballroom in NYC and Lincoln Center.

Pierrot & Pirouette is a duet that combines Ballet, Jazz Dance, Mime, Acting and Street Performing in one charming show. It appeals to ALL AGES and teaches us that the gift of laughter can help us heal ourselves and reach out to other people. This is one school assembly program your students will be sure to remember.

Starring Mark Stolzenberg and Jennifer Carlson.
Created by Mark Stolzenberg and Christine Di Mario.
