Description

Flight Feathers Ballet

The Spring Showcase features three separate, diverse works. The evening begins with a beautiful scene from Sleeping Beauty (the third act, Aurora’s Wedding), featuring the original score by Tchaikovsky. The choreography is based on Petipa’s work, but modified and reimagined by Mija Trimble to fit each dancer. The second work is Purpose and Passion, an original piece by Flight Feathers Ballet instructor, Emily Mickelson. This dance explores our search for meaning in life, and what we are all striving towards. The final performance of the evening is the comedic ballet, Graduation Ball. It is a cheerful, fun-filled ballet with charming characters who will make you laugh and leave you feeling nostalgic.

Flight Feathers Ballet was born during the pandemic to keep the dancers in Woodinville dancing and thriving. As it has grown, the school has kept a strong focus on making dance, especially ballet, accessible to everyone. Flight Feathers Ballet is committed to building a strong foundation for all young dancers, feeding their inspiration, and helping them take flight on their own creative journeys.

Mija Trimble is the Founder and Director of Flight Feathers Ballet. Mija started dancing at the age of six in Hiroshima, Japan, and it was not long until she fell in love with ballet. As she progressed through her ballet career, Mija performed the title roles in CinderellaFirebirdGisellePaquita, and more. After years of performing, teaching ballet has grown to become Mija’s driving passion. In the decade before founding Flight Feathers Ballet, she taught and directed shows at many dance schools throughout the Pacific Northwest, as well as in Tokyo and Kanagawa, Japan. In May of 2021, Mija decided it was time to create her own company and opened Flight Feathers Ballet in Woodinville. Although she is primarily focused on teaching and directing, Mija still enjoys performing whenever she can, collaborating with local musicians and artists and featuring in numerous shows and music videos.
