MUNROE FALLS, OH (WOIO) - You've probably seen The Little Mermaid Disney movie, or maybe even the Broadway show.
But now, some local students will be presenting the story as a ballet, right here in Northeast Ohio.
The Ballet Theatre of Ohio will hold the world premiere of The Little Mermaid May 5 and 6 at the Akron Civic Theater.
All of the dancers train at the Christine Jones/Meneer School of Dance.
The troupe is mostly made up of kids from kindergarten to 12th grade, with just a few professionals.
Christine Meneer, Artistic Director of BTO, is a native of Cuyahoga Falls.
