Breaking Ballet, our first show of the season, hit the Capitol Theatre stage on Friday, Oct. 2, for a run of seven performances. It features four diverse works by three choreographers designed to challenge your beliefs about dance and celebrate the artists behind the craft. Cyndi Lauper’s music makes an appearance, as does David Bowie’s. And you’ll hear original compositions from our very own Gabriel Gaffney Smith.
With four shows down and just three to go, here’s a look at what people are saying about Breaking Ballet:
