HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - A piece of Neverland will be making it's way to the valley this weekend. The Huntsville Ballet Company is performing "Peter Pan."

We stopped by their rehearsal on Wednesday at the Von Braun Center, as a rigging team was teaching the dancers how to safely fly- no fairy dust included.

The dancers say they're enjoying the experience. "It was exhilarating. As a kid I loved of rollercoasters, and I had kind of forgotten about that thrill and then they got me up in the air and I started swinging and I just loved it," said Sarah Pautz, Principal Dancer for Huntsville Ballet Company.

Their first performance will be Saturday, April 9 at 2pm. They'll perform again at 7:30 and on Sunday at 2pm.
