Lights, Costumes, Pointe Shoes, ACTION!

“Dress rehearsal is extremely important for us because we get to practice with everything, from costumes to lights to music. I like it because I get used to how the show will flow.” – Leanne Mizzoni

Lights, costumes, pointe shoes, ACTION! This week, and despite the snow, Ballet Fantastique company dancers spent hours at dress rehearsal preparing for the upcoming Tales from the Floating World performances.

BFan is ecstatic to continue the NEW LEGENDS season with Tales from the Floating World, a landmark contemporary ballet premiere inspired by the haunting and powerful music of Portland Taiko and live koto player Mitsuki Dazai.
