Milwaukee Ballet returns to the stage Feb. 25 with limited in-person attendance
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Ballet will open its doors for the first time in a year later this month.
The dance company made the announcement in a press release Wednesday, Feb. 10.
The release says approximately 50 people will be welcomed per show as the city of Milwaukee relaxes gathering restrictions from 10 people to 25% capacity.
“Returning to the stage during this pandemic is like recovering from injury. Rehabilitation is slow and steady, you must commit to a goal and keep working diligently towards it. That’s what we’re doing here at Milwaukee Ballet,” explained Artistic Director Michael Pink.
Milwaukee Ballet's next production, To The Pointe, will run from Feb. 25-March 7. The show is one hour, with no intermission.
“This is an opportunity to safely escape from the everyday for 60 minutes and remember the joy of live performance,” Pink noted. “Additionally, it will be a true treat to see this many iconic works in one program.”
Milwaukee Ballet says their safety protocols require masks in Baumgartner Center for Dance for all audience members, dancers and staff at all times.
