Beyond the Ballet Barre: Ballet Theatre of Toledo

Ballet Barre

Thursday, November 9 at 8 p.m.

Perhaps more than any other form of dance, classical ballet ingrains in dancers a high standard of discipline, confidence, and hard work. To achieve the effortless beauty of ballet requires hours and hours of rigorous training each week. But ballet is not limited to the studio or the stage; it transforms every aspect of a dancer's life. Follow the path of a dancer as told by Nigel Burgoine, a professional dancer and teacher, Evan, a young company member set on becoming a professional, and a host of current and former dancers.
