We saw Giselle last night and I can’t get the second act out of my mind. Just beautiful! We went last year to the Nutcracker which was also spectacular. Thanks for the special Meet the Artists before the show—very informative! We’ll be back for sure!

Stop by and look at the studios, then stay and participate in a wonderful ballet lesson for children or Adults alike. Most classes feature a live piano player and exceptional teachers. Adult beginners to advanced classes offered 7 days a week.

Beautiful production of Christmas classic even at nosebleed seats. Plan ahead for next year to get better seats. I've also seen their other productions earlier this year. If you love classic and modern ballet it's worth the tickets. Better yet become a subscriber. Always a...More
