Event description

Description

Of all art forms, Ballet has the power to truly move. Rooted in tradition, yet dynamic by nature, it is poetry in constant motion. Forty years after Goh Ballet first opened its doors, we have found a kindred spirit and new home in Oakridge. A vibrant cultural hub that unites heritage with progress. As we move forward into our new season, we welcome you to join us at our Open House to celebrate and realize the visions of Goh Ballet. A rare and exciting opportunity to view The Nutcracker rehearsals for the very first time or take part in complimentary Sample Classes.

Join us for an exclusive guided tour
of the Unwritten Exhibition and
The Goh Ballet Oakridge Studio
