WEEK #6: Thursday
Happy almost-weekend! On today’s Coffee Break With the Ballet we’ve got our final “Stars of OBT” and a new “Random Thursday Question” that we KNOW you’ll all have an opinion about . . .
Stars of OBT: “Dress For Success”
Costumes are the finishing touch, whether it’s a simple leotard to let the dancer’s body movement show, or an ornate ensemble that creates a character. Costumes transform the dancers from hardworking artists/athletes into bluebirds and swans, princes and princesses, sugarplums and firebirds.
