It’s always enjoyable and refreshing to meet someone who has a similar passion for the arts like myself which made meeting Jessica Wallis of Ballet in Cleveland so great. Jessica, the Founding Director, established this fantastic non profit to promote classical ballet in the city of Cleveland, Ohio through presenting performances by professional ballet companies and creating events that not only raise awareness, but also educate and entertain. One of these events is just around the corner – a ballet master class with a professional dancer, Allison DeBona!
Featured in the CW’s hit series Breaking Pointe and a member of Ballet West, Allison DeBona is coming to Cleveland on March 2nd to create a ballet experience of a lifetime. Not only will she be teaching two personalized master classes (with classes holding no more than 40 students each), but she will also hold a Q&A session after each class for the students to ask any questions about her career and her life on the stage. I would love to know how many pointe shoes she goes through in a season!
Not only will you get to experience taking class with DeBona, the master class will be held at the Gund Dance Studio right at Playhouse Square in the heart of Cleveland along with legendary ballet class accompanist John Parkinson.
The price of this ballet class also includes an autographed headshot of DeBona, a photo with DeBona, a Ballet in Cleveland dance bag, a Ballet in Cleveland water bottle and even a nutrition bar from Real Food Barre including a meet and greet with the Real Food Barre founders, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre principal dancer Julia Erickson and Aaron Ingley.
Limited space is available and spots at the barre are going quickly so be sure to register as soon as possible or by calling 330-285-5779.
