This weekend's selection of ballet performances is bound to keep you on your toes (see what I did there?). Two local ballet academies, Trillium Dance Studio and North Coast Dance, are putting their best feet forward and presenting their spring productions. Luckily, both productions run through the entire weekend, so catch both shows and take in tu-tu times the ballet!
Trillium Dance Studio presents Amazon at the Van Duzer Theatre on Saturday, June 7 at 6 p.m. and Sunday, June 8 at 2 p.m. ($13, $10 children and seniors). With choreography by Erin McKeever and the Trillium instructors, the show is an eclectic selection of ballet and contemporary performances by each of the dance class levels.
North Coast Dance presents Ballet Heritage, a celebration of classic and Americana ballet. The student production plays at the Arkley Center for Performing Arts at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 6, 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 7 and 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 8 ($15, $12 kids 12 and under). This plié-ful performace gives a glimpse of the history of American ballet, featuring performances from "Les Sylphides," "Stars and Stripes" and more. Tickets are available in advance or at the door of the Arkley Center.
