Poughkeepsie troupe to perform classic
On Saturday, June 11, the Poughkeepsie City Ballet, featuring students from the New York Academy of Ballet, will present its futuristic, steampunk-infused interpretation of the fantastical world of Wonderland imagined by Lewis Carroll 150 years ago. Act II features a Jabberwocky Battle choreographed by Steve Rooks, former principal dancer with the Martha Graham Dance Company.
Audience members are invited to dress as Alice in Wonderland characters. A prize for best costume will be awarded during intermission at both performances, which take place at 2 and 6:30 p.m. For tickets, visit bardavon.org or call 845-473-2072. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors, students and veterans.
