Greetings Tampa Bay!  Jessica here with a fun Tampa Bay entertainment event... once again the Patel Conservatory has a great performance scheduled -- the Youth Ballet students are presenting The Little Mermaid on Friday, May 7 at 7:30 PM.  The performance will take place in Ferguson Hall at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts.

Staged to beautiful music by Antonin Dvorak, dancers in grades pre-K through twelve will perform this magical ballet based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen.  To refresh your childhood memories, The Little Mermaid tells the story of a young mermaid who drinks a magic potion, allowing her to dance on beautiful legs and attract the attention of the prince.

Regularly priced tickets are $10 to $20 in advance and $12 to $22 the day of the show.  Tickets may be purchased by calling 813.229.7827, in person at the Straz Center Ticekt Office, or online at
