In the Shadows of Pine Mountain
the Scots-Irish exodus from Ulster to the Appalachian Mountains

Hello Dancers! Congratulations on an incredible performance at the Amphitheater! All of you did a beautiful job and it was a gorgeous show, beginning to end. Thank you for all your hard work-it paid off. We have received an incredible positive response from our community!

Keep reading for the Pine Mountain Cast List! This full length ballet will explore the history of the Scots-Irish exodus from Ulster, one of the four traditional Irish provinces, in Northern Ireland. We will go deep into history and then travel in time to the hills of Appalachia and the descendants of the Scots-Irish. I will be providing the storyline and specifics of each character at a later date. Right now I am just trying to post the cast list and rehearsal schedule! In this schedule is also rehearsals for the Nutcracker for our Nutcracker Breakfast fundraiser and the KSO shows (apprentice is not in the KSO show). I will try to build the schedule as far out as possible.

See you in rehearsal!
