Stars of American Ballet

What's so great about ballet? If you're not swept away by the tutus, the pink-ribboned shoes, or the graceful athleticism of the dancers, it might be difficult to convince you of the art form's merit. But by god, you are missing out. We recommend opening your mind for just one performance at the Eisemann Center (2351 Performance Drive, Richardson) this weekend and let the Stars of American Ballet pirouette away your misconceptions. Names like Megan Fairchild or Daniel Ulbricht probably don't mean anything to you, but just know you'll be seeing some of the best performing classics like George Balanchine's Tarantella and Tchaikovsky's pas de deux. If you walk away unmoved, well, you probably won't. But hey, you'll have to see for yourself. Performance starts in the Hill Performance Hall at 3 p.m. Sunday.
