Get ready to party like it's 1929 as you join fellow WGBH supporters for an evening of swing dancing to live tunes performed by Brooklyn's own Baby Soda Jazz Band. You can get into the swing of things with an optional one-hour beginners' lesson from Boston Swing Central. Then, it's time to dance the night away, but don't worry -- no experience or partner is required. You'll have a blast while learning about the history and culture of swing dancing from experts who'll demonstrate how the style has evolved. Seasoned dancers can even take part in a Charleston contest. Learn More

Stunning! Beautiful! Athletic! The scenery, the costumes, the music, and of course, the dancers were all amazing. The first and third acts were especially wonderful, and I feel very lucky to have been able to see this historic show all these years later. Bravo to the Boston Ballet for doing such an amazing job with these beautiful works.
The Ballets Russes became one of the most influential ballet companies of the 20th century, presenting ground-breaking artistic collaborations among choreographers, composers and artists.
