Once again, New Mexico Dance Theater (NMDT) Performance Company and director Susan Baker-Dillingham are bringing an original story ballet to Los Alamos. NMDT will present Baker-Dillingham’s original version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale, “Snow White,” Feb. 22- 24 at the Duane W. Smith Auditorium.This year, NMDT is partnering with the Los Alamos County Library System on an eight-month collaboration, “Literacy in Motion.” The goal of “Literacy in Motion” is to further a love of the arts by using dance as a form of storytelling, allowing readers of all ages to enhance their reading experience by imagining how the characters would use movement to communicate a story themselves. NMDT’s “Snow White” does just that, Baker-Dillingham said.“The ballet is based on the Brothers Grimm book and follows the story very closely, even down to the demise of the Wicked Stepmother, who dances herself to death in red-hot shoes pulled from the fire during Snow White’s wedding,” Baker-Dillingham said. “Fairy tales cover such a wide range of emotions,” she added, “that’s why they can be so diverse and interesting to audience members of all ages. ‘Snow White’ isn’t just for children.
