 Where and when to see this spectacular production!
DANB is delighted to announce that they have signed a three year contract with the Reilly Arts Center in Ocala, Florida to be their Resident Professional Ballet Company.     More about the Reilly

A HAUNTED SWAN LAKE will open at the Reilly and then return to Gainesville to "haunt" the Phillips Center!  In Kim Tuttle's HAUNTED SWAN LAKE you'll meet an evil magician that flies in to snatch the Swan Queen.  Then there is a crazy Halloween Party that takes place in the Palace.  Ghosts, flappers, card sharks, Star Wars characters, wild Latin dancers, A Voodoo doll and more invade the Palace.  You only think you know what will happen! 
Two of the amazing swans sculpted by Paul Costanza.  Yes, there is a black and a white swan!

This production of A HAUNTED SWAN LAKE incorporates the work of many artists and designers - not to mention fabulous dancing and a Von Rothbart that flies!    About A HAUNTED SWAN LAKE
