Dance in Sammons Park with Complexions Contemporary Ballet
Dallas – Freestanding ballet barres will fill Sammons Park at the AT&T Performing Arts Center campus for Big Barre, an outdoor ballet class for everyone, on Saturday morning, May 21. All levels of dancers, experienced or not, are welcome to participate. The class will be led by dancers from the premiere touring ballet company Complexions Contemporary Ballet, who will perform that evening in the Winspear Opera House at 7:30.
Big Barre is the second free, public ballet class staged in Sammons Park by TITAS Presents in association with the Center. As before, anyone can participate. Whether this is someone’s first class or if one is a seasoned dancer, they can experience this lesson outdoors in the beautiful Dallas Arts District. We recommend comfortable clothing (overalls, leggings), socks or sneakers, or shoes demi-pointe.
Class begins at 10:30 a.m. in front of the Winspear Opera House. Free parking is available for class attendees beneath the Winspear Opera House in Lexus Red Parking.
Prior to the Big Barre class, from 9 – 10 a.m., the Center will also host a dance fitness class as part of Local Motion, the weekly free outdoor fitness program. Power House of Dance, one of DFW’s most popular studios, will lead a Booty Bounce Twerk-Out class. So make it a day of dance at the Center: twerk, ballet, then see Complexions that evening.
Last May was the first free outdoor barre class like this on the Center’s campus. The idea proved popular, as more than one hundred participants lined up along Flora Street and around Sammons Park (even on the Center’s reflecting pool) to practice with the guidance of professional touring ballet dancers. This year’s class will be near the Center’s reflecting pool.
