You’re usually pretty en pointe when it comes to planning a good date night, but lately you’ve been off your mark. Dinner and a movie get pretty meh after a while, even with the best of company, so you’re looking for something that’ll sweep your better half off their feet. The Dallas Neo-classical Ballet might have just the ticket for your perfect evening, as they kick off their season with a short performance at RO2 Art, 110 N. Akard St., Saturday night. Catch an early dinner and arrive at 7 for hors d’oeuvres and wine that’ll make you both feel super swank. At 8, take your seat, hold your sweetie’s hand and prepare for a magical presentation of both solo and collaborative pieces that combine modern themes (like social media) and modern music (DeVotchKa!) alongside variations on more traditional ballets (Swan Lake). The best part about this date idea? It’s free, with donations requested — giving you the chance to show off not only your planning savvy but your generosity as well.
