You don’t have to leave the state to watch an amazing ballet. You can attend “Ovation” by the Alabama Ballet and see ballet at its finest. This mixed repertory performance includes the one-act ballet “Études” and an original work by the ballet’s resident choreographer. The ballet will hit the stage at the BJCC on Oct. 20–22, and tickets are on sale now.
If this is going to be your first ballet, you want to make sure it goes off without a hitch. Use these tips as a guide to ensure you have an amazing time at Ovation.
Get the Right Tickets
Front row is the best row, right? It might be for some shows, but not the ballet. You’ll want to see all of the moving parts, so it is better to sit back a bit. Even several rows back will let you take in the entire performance. That way, you can fully appreciate it. Of course, if front row is all that’s left when you get your tickets, it’s definitely better than nothing. You don’t want to miss this ballet, so take what you can get.
There isn’t technically a dress code for the ballet, but dressing up is a sign of respect. You don’t have to go all out with formal attire, but professional attire is expected. If you come to see the Alabama Ballet in shorts and a T-shirt, you are going to get a few looks and you’ll feel out of place. The performers will also feel disrespected. The ballet is elegant, and you need to look the part, as well.
Get There Early
You might not be able to walk into the performance once it has started. You’ll likely have to wait for a break in the performance to come in and go to your seat, so it is a good idea to arrive early. That will give you ample time to get to your seat and read through your program before the performance begins.
