Fee: $3.50 members/$5 non-members;
Free for ages 2 years and younger
Choreographed by Attila Mosolygo, performed by members of the Grand Rapids Ballet Junior Company and narrated by Errol Shewman.
Developed in collaboration with Grand Rapids Ballet, this unique performance highlights characteristics of butterflies through dance. Titled Who Am I, the story is charming: a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis and wonders what kind of a creature it is, after all, it now looks nothing like a caterpillar! It encounters several other creatures, each one having something in common with a butterfly. Through process of elimination, the butterfly comes to understand what it is and its place in the natural world.
With costumes, music, audience interaction, activities before the performance starts and a question and answer period with the dancers afterward, it promises to be a thoroughly fun and enlightening experience. What better way to learn about butterfly behaviors and characteristics than through dance? Register online here or call 616-975-3147.
An American Sign Language interpreter will be provided for the March 16 performance.
