Delaware Division of the Arts Emerging Artistry Award recipient and choreographer Michele Xiques will present an original, one-act ballet, "Pippi Longstocking," at 7 p.m., Friday, April 11, at the Schwartz Center in Dover. The ballet, a required presentation for her grant award, was inspired by Astrid Lindgren's classic children's book.
Xiques’ company, Delaware Dance Alliance, will perform. DDA has brought “Twilight Ballet,” “Pirates of the Caribbean Ballet” and “Alice in Wonderland” to the Schwartz Center stage with sold-out crowds.
