This Halloweekend, don’t miss Grand Rapids Ballet School Junior Company’s Spooktacular! With witches, mummies, tricks, and treats – a hauntingly good time awaits at this special Halloween ballet with choreography by Junior Company Artistic Director Attila Mosolygo.

On Halloween night, a young girl’s only wish is to trick or treat with her older sister and her friends. When they refuse to let the youngin tag along, she embarks on a mischievous plan to get their candy. Follow the adventures in their neighborhood with appearances by skeletons, Martians, Frankenstein, and even the Addams Family! This is creepy-crawly fun for the whole family. We invite you to join in the spooky fun by coming in costume, too!
