Ballet for $18, "Human Architecture" for $25, and Tap For $20!

October 23, 2008

The Richmond Ballet pairs old with new this fall. The much-loved Ancient Airs and Dances, the first piece ever choreographed for the company by artistic director Stoner Winslett, and “…as an old shirt,” an exciting world premiere by Todd Rosenlieb, will share a program at the Ballet’s Studio Theatre November 11-16. But you won’t pay double for this two-fer: Tickets are just $28, or $18 for students. Click here for details.

Think nothing in New York is cheap anymore? Think again. The ever-innovative Misnomer Dance Theater will premiere Being Together at New York’s Joyce Soho this December—and tickets are just $25. Known for its quirky movement language, international perspective, and experiments with “human architecture,” Misnomer—one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch” for 2007—is not to be missed. See for ticket information.
