Ballet San Antonio Brings Dance to the Outdoors with Ballet in the Park


  • Alexandra Devora
Dancers will descend on Travis Park this Saturday for Ballet San Antonio's annual Ballet in the Park. The event kicks off with a free class for tiny dancers followed by a showcase featuring the local company's premiere performers.

This year's Ballet in the Park was originally scheduled for March 9 but was cancelled due to inclement weather. The rescheduled event leaped over summer's unbearable heat and landed gracefully in the beginning of fall.

At 6 p.m., dancers aged 7-10 can participate in a class taught by members of Ballet SA. The only requirement is that each has a minimum of one year's ballet experience and comes wearing appropriate dance attire. Participation is limited to 30 and granted on a first come, first served basis.

After the class, the corps of Ballet SA will dance as the sun sets, showing off their honed skills and, if audiences are lucky, giving a sneak preview of their upcoming production of Lewis Carroll's beloved classic Alice in Wonderland.

Free, 6-9 p.m. Saturday, September 28, Travis Park, 301 E. Travis St., (210) 207-3677,
