Ballet 101

Ballet is a centuries-old art form that unites physicality with artistry and music with movement.

Whether you experience a story ballet or an abstract work, the storytelling and emotion are expressed solely through dance, gesture and facial expression. Combined with sets and costumes that are works of art unto themselves, ballet promises an extraordinary theater experience.
