National Dance Week is April 22-29, and Eugene is joining the party this year. Different events will be going on across the city, but the centerpiece of Dance Week’s activities will happen at Ballet Fantastique the evening of Wednesday, April 24. From 5:30 to 7:30, the venue will host an open house with excerpts from Ballet Fantisque’s company repertoire and mini ballet-lessons for dancers aged 4-7.
Meanwhile, free community dance classes will be conducted at the University of Oregon courtesy of Dance Oregon. Classes will include modern dance and African dance, as well as pilates and yoga for dancers and more. For the full schedule visit Dance Oregon’s Facebook page.
