Tacoma City Ballet Spring Extravaganza Dance Preview

Tacoma City Ballet Spring Dance Extravaganza

Tacoma City Ballet Spring Dance Extravaganza

Last Friday Carrie & I went down to the Merlino Arts Center (where The Grand Cinema is) to attend Tacoma City Ballet’s Free Spring Dance Extravaganza Preview & Choreographers’ Talk.

The three choreographers involved each talked a bit about the dances they are going to present at the actual show next month, then had their dancers do some excerpts. Afterwards there was a brief Q&A. All-told it lasted just about an hour. And it was very smart, because now I actually wanna go see the full show. See, before I was kinda on the fence about it. But now there are some dances that I’m actually excited to see: Miss Erin’s whale songs dance, Joel’s slapstick 1930s hotel comedy, and Travis’s dance that he wrote the music for himself (on a cello—It was very cool to see Trav play the cello live, even though he won’t be doing that for the actual show).

Afterwards we went down to The Hub for a bunch of appetizers and beer. As we were leaving the ballet school, though, Carrie & Travis made a bet as to how long it would take for Melissa to notice that Travis was wearing socks & sandals and then yell at him for it. But it took her way longer to notice than either one of them thought, so nobody won.
