P2P Dance Center and dancers from its performing troupe, Atlantic Ballet Company, will present "Storybook Princesses," an adventure that travels through the lives of nine magical princesses, Sunday, June 14, at 3 p.m. at the Camden Opera House, Elm Street/Route 1.

The original jazz ballet, created by directors Michele and Heather Cox, begins as Rapunzel opens her giant version of a "Once upon a Time" storybook. As each page is turned, a new landscape unfolds with colorful scenes, setting the stage for each princess and her circle of friends. The exciting lives of princesses Ariel, Snow White, Pocahontas, Jasmine and sisters Anna and Elsa are portrayed, as they dance with their fun-loving companions and are surrounded by the picturesque story land where each princess lives.

The first chapter of Rapunzel's storybook tells the tale of Princess Ariel. Silver and gold bubble guppies ride the waves, while pink and purple mermaids dance among them. Prince Eric scoops up Ariel in a comedic version of "Kiss the Girl," followed by P2P Dance Center's  jazzed-up version of "Under the Sea."

The second chapter is set at Snow White's cottage in the woods, where she frolics with the adorable seven dwarves. Accompanied by her graceful bluebird friends, Snow White nearly takes flight as she dances on pointe, barely touching the ground. Alas, her life is not all bliss, as she is pursued by the wicked Queen Ravena and her brood of shrewd huntresses.

Following intermission, the show journeys to the land of Pocahontas, where two white doves befriend the Indian princess. Her adventures span from hiding from a wagon train of cowgirls and -boys, prairie children and Western party girls to performing her native dance with the young maidens of her tribe.

Next up is Princess Jasmine, with a menagerie of jungle animals and Arabian ponies. They all celebrate in the "Prince Ali" parade with Jasmine's beau Aladdin and his friends. Princess Jasmine also is joined by a bevy of Bollywood dancers.

Finally, the young Anna and Elsa are graced by the sparkle of falling snowflakes (3-to-5-year-old dancers) as they build a life-size snowman, Olaf. The audience will follow these two princesses into their teens, as they struggle through sibling rivalry and finally enjoy the rewards of their royal heritage.

P2PDance Center's "Storybook Princesses" concludes with a lively finale that celebrates the lives of its nine storybook favorites.
