A Kennedy Center world premiere
Adapted for the stage by Debbie Allen
Since the day she was born, all Sassy has wanted to do is dance.
But her too-long legs, too-large feet, and too-big mouth always
seem to get in the way of her ballerina dreams. When a famous
director auditions her class for an international dance festival
in Washington, D.C., Sassy aims to get his attention any way
she can. Though her sky-high leaps and bright, yellow leotard
fail at first to win him over, Sassy keeps her heart set on
dancing and her head above the rest - and with the support of
her family, finally has the chance to make her mark. Written,
directed, and choreographed by Emmy winner Debbie Allen, whose
many sold-out Kennedy Center productions include Brothers of
the Knight, Pepito's Story, and Pearl, this
uplifting world premiere based on Allen's children's book will
feature some of the Washington area's most gifted young
Recommended for ages 5 and up.
