Based on the first documented acts of piracy on the Chesapeake Bay, BTM brings to life pirates, settlers and natives who lived in 17th century America in this dance assembly. Local history, swordfights and lost treasures come together through dance to tell a story of our colonial roots. Students will participate in demonstrations including stage combat.
Please note: This performance is an artistic interpretation of historical events involving pirates. As a result, the performance contains the use of stylized stage combat, primarily sword fighting and incorporates the use of stage replica weapons, primarily swords (some wood and some metal). If you are concerned about this content, please take a look at the other offerings from Ballet Theatre of Maryland, or call Young Audiences to discuss further.
