A Spoonful of Sugar

Makaroff Youth Ballet (MYB) is partnering up with the Appleton Boychoir to put on a spectacular Broadway & Hollywood-inspired show this spring!

The Appleton Boychoir will be presenting selections from Oliver and Mary Poppins. Special guest artist Megan Kahts will join the Boys as she portrays Mary Poppins herself. A world-class soprano, Kahts brings to life this toe-tapping medley which will be simply…supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Makaroff Youth Ballet will be performing three new pieces by guest choreographers Gina Laurenzi and Lauren (Ganther) Zapata.

Milwaukee Dance Artist and Choreographer, Gina Laurenzi, has set two new works on the Makaroff Youth Ballet. The company will premiere a jazz piece set to the iconic music of West Side Story and an abstract contemporary piece. This is Ms. Laurenzi’s seventh season working with the artists of MYB.

MYB alumni and board member, Lauren (Ganther) Zapata, who recently retired as a professional dancer with Twin Cities Ballet, has choreographed her first piece for Makaroff Youth Ballet. Lauren drew from the neoclassical movement to choreograph a showy and joyful piece with Hollywood movie inspirations.

All three MYB works feature costumes designed and created by Duyen Bagwell.

Don’t miss this extraordinary event to celebrate through music and movement the great moments of stage and screen!
