Of Talent and Tutus, A Performance by the School of Atelier Ballet

Waiting in the Wings by Ingrid Mida 2010

Yesterday's performance of Favourite Operatic Excerpts by the School of Atelier Ballet at the St. Lawrence Hall Ballroom was worthy of an ovation. These talented young performers from the summer program entertained the jam-packed audience with dances from La Bourree D'Achille from 1687,  Napoli (1842), and the Peasant Pas de Deux from Giselle (1841), as well as excerpts from Mozart's operas the Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and The Magic Flute.
