Join the Dance Program on Saturday, April 7 to see the Pennsylvania Ballet in a program called “Grace & Grandeur.” It offers three works from different ballet eras: Paquita, choreographed in 1881 for the Imperial Ballet of St. Petersburg by Marius Petipa, the “father of classical ballet”; Theme and Variations from 1947 by renowned neo-classical choreographer George Balanchine; and For Four by contemporary ballet choreographer Christopher Wheeldon. Come see how ballet has changed over time and how it has remained the same. The performance is at 8 pm at the Merriam Theater in Center City Philadelphia.

Tickets are available at a group rate for just $10.  (If you are taking a dance class this semester for PE or academic credit or took one last semester, you can get a refund of $10 for your ticket from the Dance TRIP program after the performance.)

To sign up: Email your interest to, then bring the money over in a labelled envelope to the Goodhart 104 by this Monday, April 2. Slide it under the door if it is closed. Receipt of your ticket money confirms your ticket.

Transportation: By train as a group to Suburban Station and then a short walk to the theater. BMC students should ask for a round-trip ticket from the Student Activities office. If there are any problems with that, write back. HC students can request train tickets from the HC Student Life office here.
