Grand Old Days Parade    2013

Grand Old Days on Grand Avenue in St Paul is considered the largest one day Festival in the Midwest.

Classical Ballet Academy and Ballet Minnesota have presented a float in the parade for over ten years. This year, 2013, the Cinderella Carriage from the ballet Cinderella was featured in the parade.

Jennifer Pray, who premiered the prncipal role of Cinderella at the 25th Minnesota Dance Festival at O'Shaughnessy on April 5-6, 2013 was on hand, dressed as Cinderella, waving to the audience from the carriage.

Other dancers, BMN company member Aaron Davies, CBA advanced dancers Berea Ames, Jordan Jankowski and Lily Gray and as well as many other younger dancers from the school were present to ride the float and dance around during the parade to the cheers and encouragement of the thousands of onlookers.
