 Anchored: The Pilgrim Story, an all-new dramatic ballet created to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims, is coming to New England this fall. Anchored is a collaboration between FirstLoveWorks, Inc., a nonprofit organization founded by Ann and Tom Savastano, and Ballet Magnificat!, “America’s premier Christian ballet company” (Charisma). Ballet Magnificat! tours worldwide and has received critical acclaim from the Washington Post, LA Times, and the Dallas Morning News.

 Anchored covers the saga of the Pilgrims’ voyage from their departure to the first Thanksgiving in America, depicting the faith, hope, and courage which sustained them. Anchored spotlights significant scenes such as the tumultuous crossing of the Atlantic, the historic signing of the Mayflower Compact, the intensity of the first winter, the long-lasting peace treaty with the Wampanoag people, and the festive harmony of the First Thanksgiving. This moving story, told through the beauty of dance, will uplift and inspire audiences today.
