Welcome to our 6th Season of Ballet La Crosse!
Tickets for our 2018-19 Season are now available!
Join us at the Weber Center for the Performing Arts for BLC’s fall production of Alice in Wonderland!
Journey down the rabbit hole with Alice as she encounters chess pieces, playing cards and other well-known characters from Lewis Carroll’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking-Glass.” With original choreography by the renowned Kennet Oberly and starring a cast of more than 70 dancers, “Alice in Wonderland” will delight audience members of all ages. This uniquely whimsical version offers a deeper look into Carroll’s dream world as seen through a child’s imagination.
Alice in Wonderland Show Dates and Times:
Saturday, November 24, 2 p.m., 7 p.m.
Sunday November 25, 2018, 2 p.m.
We are excited to announce our spring production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream!
Demonstrating that “The course of true love never did run smooth,” this Shakespearean piece from the Bard’s more creative era shares a comedic story of mischief, merriment and mayhem set to the beautiful music of Felix Mendelssohn. Choreographed by CiCi Houston from the St. Louis Ballet, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” will entertain both young and old.
This production will have roles for male and female dancers in Ballet III and up. We would love to have you join us for our free, friendly and fun auditions for our spring production!
