P2PDance Center will feature “Snow White and the Huntresses" in its Spring Celebration Sunday, June 9, at 6 p.m. at the Camden Opera House, Elm Street/Route 1. Inspired by the release of "Snow White and the Huntsman," a new twist on the story of Snow White and her beloved seven dwarfs, P2P director Michele Cox and artistic director Heather Cox have launched this classic story, complete with new choreography and a colorful array of new costumes.

"Our new version of ‘Peter Pan’ was so well received by this community last spring that we decided to recreate the classic story of Snow White this year," said Michele Cox.

The youngest boys and girls portray prancing ponies, hopping bunnies, water sprites and wood nymphs. Junior Company dancers flutter around Snow White as bluebirds, as well as portraying the characters of Doc, Sneezy, Happy and Dopey. The roles of Snow White, the wicked Queen Ravenna and her Amazon-like soldiers, called Huntresses, and the magical sylphs are all danced by Senior Company members.

The Camden-based P2PDance Center has extended its training program to the Belfast Dance Studio, Waldo County YMCA and Damariscotta's Great Salt Bay School. Dancers from these locations will be among the 70 performers in this entertaining spring show. The first half will feature upbeat examples of P2PDance works in jazz, ballet and modern dance.

“These styles contribute to the versatility of our ballet dancers and prepare them for the variety of dance programs they may partake in during college years or in pre-professional training schools," said Cox.

General seating tickets are $15, $12 for senior citizens and children younger than 13. They are available at HAV II, Camden; Reading Corner, Rockland; and Opera House Video, Belfast. For reserved tickets, call Michele Cox at 236-2395.
