Ballet for families
Catch a performance by the Ballet Theatre of Maryland this weekend in Annapolis. The classical ballet company presents two shows of mixed repertoire appropriate for the entire family. Each show features four dances. The first ballet, La Boutique Fantasque, is set in a French toyshop where dolls, clowns and circus animals entertain visitors and each other. The second piece, Diana and Acteon, is a pas de deux starring Zhirui Zou and Bat-Erdine Udval. The third is a modern ballet by Edward Stewart, and the fourth is a ballet called Tease, the Turtle. Featuring 15 dancers, the contemporary piece by Anton Wilson is about the shedding of one's inhibitions.
The Ballet Theatre of Maryland performs at 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St., Annapolis. $15-$35. Call 410-263-2909.
