Ballet

Last night we took Eleanor to see the Tacoma Ballet in a show called Hallowed Dances. The company is trying to move away from the "story dances" that require a lot in the way of expensive sets and costumes, and they're experimenting with shorter themed dances. It was fabulous!

The highlight was their Danse Macabre piece, where the dancers wore full body flourescent skeleton costumes. The stage was black and lit in such a way that all you could see were the painted skeletons as the dancers danced around.

The company is only performing this weekend, Saturday is the final performance, so I highly recommend that dance afficianados make the effort to catch the show tonight.
