Local Dancers Come Home to Showcase Their Insurmountable Talents

Opened in 2005 as part of Baton Rouge's Shaw Center for the Arts, The Manship Theatre offers an extraordinary range of arts and cultural experiences to people of all ages, presented in a uniquely intimate setting. The not-for-profit facility is named in honor of Douglas Lewis Manship, Sr., the son of Charles Manship, Sr. Venues include the 325-seat Main Theater, the Hartley/Vey Studio and Workshop Theatres, and The Gallery at Manship Theatre.

Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre wraps up its “Touring our Town” season by bringing home some of their most successful alumni as they share their talents on the stage of the Manship Theatre both as performers and choreographers. Much of the choreography performed for this weekend of shows was created by former BRBT dancers who have gone on to have professional careers as dancers, choreographers, or educators.

Each of these alumni dancers’ career paths are unique, some trending towards ballet styles while others have seen success in contemporary dance or jazz. Because this mixed bill is such a reunion of rich talent, the production is being titled Homecoming Dances.

All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket to attend performances. Please carefully consider whether a performance is appropriate for children before planning to attend. Ticket costs range from $25-$45, plus fees.
