Ballet Wyoming discusses their newest performance

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo.- Ballet Wyoming is excited to share their newest performance, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Friday, May 5 and Saturday May 6.

Director of Ballet Wyoming, Kathy Vreeland, says this particular take of the Shakespeare performance is not your typical original story. Vreeland says they have everything from fantasy, hoop dance and even a unicorn.

This performance will be strictly classical ballet and on pointe, but Vreeland says it will be a relaxing performance with a touch of comedy.

The dancers of Ballet Wyoming practice long hours to make sure they're ready to hit the stage. When asked what the biggest challenge the dancers faced during rehearsals, Vreeland said they had several injuries. She said the injuries were mostly a result of the short rehearsal time between the last Peter Pan performance and this one; however, Vreeland says the dancers are good and ready to perform.

"A Midsummer Night's Dream" will show on Friday, May 5 at 7pm and Saturday, May 6 at 2pm at the Cheyenne Civic Center. Tickets are $15-$40 depending on the location of your seat. You can contact the Civic Center or check out Ballet Wyoming's page to get your tickets.
