We visited the dancers in class for a behind the scenes look as they get ready for their upcoming performance. Dozens of dancers will take part in the performance that’s based on a book by Charles Nuitter, after E.T.A. Hoffmann’s Der Sandmann. It’s considered one of the triumphant comic ballets of the 19th century. 

“Coppelia” follows the love triable between a girl, a boy, and a doll. The dancers are learning the choreography to get ready for when the lead dancers will come to join them for the performances.
