The Pointe of the Evening Ballet and Auction, an annual fundraiser for The Chance to Dance Scholarship, will feature local and professional dancers at their best. Advanced members of the Findlay Academy of Ballet will present selections ranging from traditional ballet to modern dance. Professional pieces include a pas de deux from La Bayadere, performed by Brian Murphy of Verb Ballets and Jennifer Safonovs of Neos Dance Theatre. The entire 10-person company of Neos – which brought The Nutcracker to Findlay in November of 2012 – will perform a full-length piece by artistic director and Nutcracker choreographer Bobby Wesner. Proceeds from the event go to the scholarship fund, which helps provide financial assistance and instruction opportunities for local dancers.
Saturday, March 1. The night will start with a silent auction and entertainment at 6:30pm, and the event will begin at 7:30pm, followed by a reception. Winebrenner Auditorium, 950 N.
