Around Town: Off To The Ballet

By: Amy Yew

If you’re looking for something new to try this year, going to the ballet is definitely one to put on your list. It’s certainly on mine. Even editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue Amy Astley is a fan from what we see on her Instagram.

For Vancouverites, the Miami City Ballet presented by Ballet BC is coming to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre for an exclusive performance from February 19th to the 21st. For those who may not know, Miami City Ballet has been named one of America’s most beloved dance companies by the New York Times.

The Balanchine will feature 3 bills from George Balanchine’s work: Serenade, Symphony in Three Movements and Ballo della Regina. The show will also feature a fast paced and elaborate choreography with the integration of classical music. Tickets for the show range from $40.00-$98.50 and is available online at Ticketmaster.


I’ll be heading to see the ballet, so stay tuned for more on my night. Hope to see you there!
