SARATOGA SPRINGS – Children ages 4 to 8 put on their ballet shoes and fairy wings at SPAC Thursday night.

They were given access to the big stage and were able to learn choreography from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” by dancer Mimi Staker.

The older child dancers cast in last year’s "Swan Lake" production were able to dance on the stage with a principal ballerina.

The New York City Ballet and Opera Saratoga are in town.
