The Ballet Comes to Selma

The ballet is just a little more than two weeks away.

The Montgomery Ballet will perform classical and contemporary selections Friday, February 27 at Selma's Performing Arts Center, and attendees will be in for a delightful evening.

The Ballet's artistic director, Elie Lazar, is known for his versatility and inventiveness as a choreographer. So, expect something different, especially with the contemporary performances.

Lazar founded the Joffrey Ensemble Dancers and the LazarBallet NYC, and he previously has created ballets for the New Jersey Ballet Company, Atlanta's Georgia Youth Ballet, Japan's Kumamota Ballet and others.

The ballet begins at 7:30, preceded by a champagne and chocolate reception (included in the ticket price). Tickets are available at the Centre for Commerce and Truax & Co. The performance is a presentation of Arts Revive and The Montgomery Ballet.

Wow! Culture comes to the Southland! I think Ballet is beautiful! Jackson, MS has some of this, too....so that proves that not everyone in the South is a Redneck! Some of those positions.....it hurts me to even think about them!
