Free ballet in the park

Yes, it’s hot – but by the time 6 p.m. rolls around, we’re seeing the kind of balmy evening we can only dream about in Tacoma for 11 months of the year. And what better way to enjoy it than in the shade of a cool tree watching someone else sweat it out?

Tonight at 6 p.m. the dancers from Metropolitan Ballet of Tacoma are putting on “Summer Dance in the Park,” a short, free presentation of contemporary choreography in South Park. Choreographers include MBT’s director Damaris Caughlan, Yuka Ilno of Oregon Ballet Theatre and Artur Sultanov of LINES Ballet.

The show will be held near the gazebo in South Park, 4851 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma. Bring a picnic and enjoy the roses.
