Art, Culture, and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet

Morden-Winkler sets the stage for creatives in Southern Manitoba. With the Pembina Hills Arts Council, Winkler Concert Hall, and small businesses abundant in locally curated art, there are multiple options for artists and admirers alike. This Friday the Winnipeg Royal Ballet will make their first trip to Morden-Winkler to perform “Concert Hour Ballet.” Mark your calendars, because they are sure to stun.

What to Expect from the Royal Winnipeg Ballet

“Concert Hour Ballet,” is an hour-long show meant to give audiences the opportunity to experience ballet without the drive to Winnipeg. The dancers are professional division senior students, the highest achievable level at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School. The show itself is mixed repertoire, so audiences can expect a variety of classical, contemporary, modern, and character dance, complete with costume and set changes. There are excerpts from famous favourites like Sleeping Beauty and La Bayadere, as well as never-before-seen original pieces, some of which were written by the students themselves!

If you or your family haven’t before experienced the power of ballet, this is a must do in Morden-Winkler this weekend. The dancers of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet are incredible athletes who have trained their bodies for decades to react meticulously to whatever piece they are performing. Many of the dancers have been practicing ballet since they were 10 years old or younger, and have dedicated their lives to the art. Their incredible strength, flexibility, and stamina are sure to capture the attention of all audiences, young and old. The best part? Each act is only around 5 minutes long, so audiences experience a variety of dances in a short period of time.
