The stage at New Milford High School came alive with the talents of young dancers May 4-5 as Studio D hosted its twin productions of "Cinderella -- In Motion" and "Bedtime Stories -- In Motion."

Studio D owner Rebecca Anderson Darling directed the shows.

Young dancers of all ages trained at Studio D performed in one or both shows.

"Bedtime Stories" is an original creation taking inspiration from classic fairytale characters and infused with favorite bedtime stories.

The cast included Christina Zaharevich, Morgan Melendez, Juliana Zaharevich, Sheah Tooley, Elizabeth Hawley, Zoe Miolla, Amanda Tesoriero, Lindsey Johnson, Hannah Lasky, Colleen O'Connor, Caitlin Chemero, Micayla Flynn, Kala Muckerman, Lindsey Federowicz, Emmie Tesoriero, Alexa Esposito and Gabriela Esposito.

Studio D first presented "Cinderella" in 2008, but Darling recreated the production by combining old favorites with many new ones (see photos).

The cast included Darling, Rebecca Johanson, Carlye Gruss, Alexis Yancoskie, Caroline Johnson, Sydney Killebrew, Marina Prontelli, Lea Krebs, James Jandrok, Ashley Eng, Jessie Melendez, Julia Venezia, Devyn Looney, Carolyn Gevinski, Ashley Mulhare, Alexa Sullivan and Cori Paquin.
