Friends University’s traditional fall ballet performance will examine the art of dance from both a historic and contemporary angle as dancers depict the theme “How to Look at Dance” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 4-5, and 2 p.m. Oct. 6  in the Riney Fine Arts Center’s Sebits Auditorium.

Associate Professor of Dance Sharon Rogers will give a brief lecture demonstration, with the help of the Friends University dancers, on the history of ballet and how it has changed over the years. The dancers will then perform two ballets – the historic “Les Sylphides,” which was first performed in 1907, and “Contemporary Ballet” by Stan K. Rogers.

Tickets are $16 for adults, and $13 for seniors and students. They may be purchased online or by calling the Fine Arts Box Office at 316-295-5677.
