February celebrates two of the world’s most beloved choreographers, Jerome Robbins and Jiří Kylián. The season closes in April with everyone’s favorite free spirit, PETER PAN. The Dayton Ballet subscription includes a C-tier Wild Card that can be used for any Dayton Performing Arts Alliance event. What an exciting season of story ballets and dance legends!
