Deirdre, A Celtic Tale
The Northwest Michigan Ballet Theatre will present "Deirdre, A Celtic Tale" for three shows on February 14 & 15, 2014, at the Dennos Museum Center-Milliken Auditorium.
“Deirdre” is a beautiful medieval Irish folk legend. The ballet is based on Deirdre and the Sons of Usna, adapted from the original Gaelic by John Stuart Dick. The score is a magnificently orchestrated soundtrack by Mychael Danna and Jeff Danna with additional music by the Tannahill Weavers and Carter Burwell. Stunning period costumes, lavish sets and Thomas Morrell’s moving choreography intertwine to transport the audience to an ancient Ireland of ruthless kings, fearless knights and forbidden love.
Ballet Etc. has provided dance education to the Traverse City region since 1996. We offer classes in Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Tap, Irish and Pre-School Dance for ages 3 through adult. Ballet Etc. is a competition-free dance studio. That is, we do not promote sports-like competitions nor do we expect parents to shell out hundreds of dollars for expensive costumes, entrance fees and costly travel and hotel expenses.

Our mission is to provide dance education that focuses on technique and performance skills built on a solid foundation. Costumes for our annual spring performance are simple accessories added to the student's required class attire. No costumes need to be purchased. The emphasis is to present a program that demonstrates the technical and artistic progress of our students, who relish a true feeling of accomplishment.
Additional performance opportunities are available with the Northwest Michigan Ballet Theatre, open to dancers 9-18 by audition. This non-profit 501c3 company performs an annual full-length ballet production as well as an elementary school outreach-touring program.
Whether a student is interested in a professional career, eager to master new skills or simply enjoys the exercise, consider joining the Ballet Etc. family...we are dedicated to developing a true appreciation for and accomplishment in the art of dance.
