Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.”

"The Trepac dancers are completely fabulous. The Arabian dancers…defy physics."

Copley Symphony Hall first opened in 1929 as The Fox Theatre. Originally a movie palace, its grand opening that year featured several guest stars, including Jackie Coogan, Buster Keaton, George Jessel, and Will Rogers. The Fox became a top choice for many motion picture previews, and was so loved by Walt Disney that he held all his movie premieres there. The theater underwent a complete restoration in the mid-1980s, and was renamed Copley Symphony Hall upon reopening in 1985; today, it is the largest theater of its kind in California. For many years, the theater has been home to the San Diego Symphony, and has also hosted classic film presentations, a variety of music concerts, and live theater performances.
