A Winnipeg summer tradition since the 1970’s, Ballet in the Park continuously attracts thousands of Manitobans along with summer tourists. Held at the Lyric Theatre in Assiniboine Park, the show features a mixed repertoire of works showcasing dancers from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet Company and students from the RWB’s Professional Division.

This year Ballet in the Park marks the launch of the 40th anniversary of the RWB School Professional Division. As a part of the anniversary celebrations there will be free creative movement classes for children offered prior to each performance, a GIANT birthday card for guests to sign, free give-a-ways, contests and much more!

Ballet in the Park 2010 will be taking place July 28th through 30th at 7.30PM.
