Sisk began taking ballet classes from Mitchell when she was five years old. She’s had tremendous success and is one of Ballet West’s Principal dancers.

She dances the lead role of Princess Aurora in The Sleeping Beauty while Chase O’Connell is the Prince. The show is appropriate for children and adults alike — a timeless story of a sleeping princess, a handsome prince, and the triumph of good over evil.

Tickets are $18 to $48. Visit to purchase.
