“Amazing!” My 11 year old son said of the ballet performances we saw at the BlackBox Theatre in SLO on Dec. 20th. Ballet Theatre San Luis Obispo put on two performances that afternoon; The Magic Toy Shop, La Boutique Fantasque and The Skaters, Les Patineurs. The choreography was mesmerizing and the costumes impeccable!
There were dancers of all ages, each were in adorned in fantastic costumes, with hair and makeup just as fanciful, all worthy of Broadway! The set design and props were fun and magical, leaving one with the feeling of being transported to a different time.
It was apparent that much passion and love for the art of ballet went into each detail of the performances. Experiencing a story through ballet was a first for my son, and he is clearly hooked! We look forward to more performances by Ballet Theatre San Luis Obispo and highly encourage locals to support our local ballet.
Ballet training is offered through Ballet Theatre SLO.
