A reminder that Assiniboine Park will once again host the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for Ballet in the Park. Daily performances start tonight at 7:30pm and run through to Friday, July 27, 2012. It has been a summer Tradition since the 1970s and attracts thousands of Manitobans and tourists to RWB’s free performances. There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting on a lawn chair or blanket on the grass while enjoying world class ballet performances.
This year’s programming features a diverse mix of what the RWB has to offer, from the en pointe work of classical ballet to the edgy moves of contemporary dance. It includes works performed by RWB School Professional Division students, two of which have been choreographed by recent Professional Division graduates. Students from the Recreational Division will also share the stage, giving the audience a taste of the broad range of dance expression at Winnipeg’s top dance school. [BALLET IN THE PARK]
