The Surprising Side of Ballet: Part 1

Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre

With Katherine Barber, Canada’s Word Lady
Did you know that some ballets were inspired by popular music like ragtime, The Andrews Sisters or The Rolling Stones? Or that some ballets have comedic moments? Ballet is not always what we think.
Mondays: June 5, 12 & 19
Part I: June 5: Ballet Laughs: Romance, escapism, beauty, athleticism -- those are ballet's acknowledged fortes. But comedy? Surprisingly, there are more hilarious moments in ballet than you might expect.
Series: $40, Drop-in: $16
