Wonderland as Futuristic Ballet

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.
