I've tried desperately over the years to rid myself of a filthy habit: reality television. The lot of it is garbage, but if there's one show I would keep on my list of guilty pleasures these days, it would have to be Breaking Pointe. The series follows Ballet West through the ups and downs of a ballet company and its stars as they navigate professional and personal highs and lows.
Lucky for me and my fellow Chicagoan BP addicts, Ballet West is coming to town this weekend to perform Sleeping Beauty, as well as a mixed repertory program that includes The Lottery and Rubies. See below for a rundown of Ballet West's weekend in Chicago and catch my thoughts next week on their mixed rep performance!
Who: Ballet West, the stars of hit reality show Breaking Pointe
