Video: Behind the Scenes at The Wizard of Oz Photo Shoot

October 3, 2019

We had so much fun at our photo shoot for The Wizard of Oz!  Each dancer spent time in hair and makeup before changing into their amazing character costumes. In this video, you’ll see Principal Dancer Melissa Gelfin as Dorothy, Principal Dancer Cervilio Amador as Scarecrow, and Corps de Ballet Artists Michael Mengden and Taylor Carrasco as The Cowardly Lion and The Tin Man. The transformations were so fun to watch. See them live at the Aronoff Center for the Arts October 25 through November 3. Special thanks to photographer Aaron M. Conway and his staff.

Choreographer: Septime Webre
