Local ballet dancer Daniel Ulbricht, friends performs Sunday at Mahaffey

Daniel Ulbricht, left, danced children's roles in The Nutcracker at Mahaffey Theater when he was growing up in St. Petersburg. Now Ulbricht is a rising star with New York City Ballet, and he's returning to his hometown to present himself and six of his friends — all top-level ballet dancers — in a mixed program at Mahaffey. They will perform (to taped music) excerpts from works by NYCB co-founder George Balanchine, including Tarantella and Who Cares?, as well as excerpts from Coppelia and Swan Lake. Ulbricht will perform a contemporary solo by Servy Gallardo. Three other dancers in the program also grew up in the Tampa Bay area: Savannah Lowery and Ashley Laracey, both members of NYCB, and Allison Miller of Houston Ballet. The performance is at 3 p.m. Sunday at Mahaffey Theater, 400 First St. S, St. Petersburg. $25, $40. (727) 892-5767.

Coming Sunday IN LATITUDES: Ulbricht talks about returning to his hometown and life in New York City.
