We’re looking forward to a free evening of dance this Saturday, May 13, 7 p.m., at Como Dockside in St. Paul presented by our artistic partner and fellow Knight Arts Challenge winner, St. Paul Ballet.
The performance will feature a sneak peak of St. Paul Ballet’s unique, Knight Foundation-funded show called “The Art of Boxing. The Sport of Ballet,” which will have its full performance June 17 at the High School for the Recording Arts, 1166 University Ave. W. in St. Paul.
The boxing/ballet show is the result of a partnership between the St. Paul Ballet and its neighbor in the Hamline-Midway neighborhood, Element Boxing & Fitness, featuring professionals from both the dance stage and the boxing ring exploring the discipline, athleticism and art in both worlds.
A boxing/ballet mashup? We’re expecting something creative, surprising, dynamic and beautiful. Like what you might get if you combined ballet and snow removal.
