May 1, 2019 by

To kick off our free and family-friendly 2019 Arts in the Park, Friends of Glen Providence Park is delighted to present… ballet! The Academy of International Ballet teaches and performs elegant classical ballet in the finest traditions of the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow. With studios in Media and Horsham, they bring beauty to ballet. In Glen Providence, they will present excerpts and variations from classical ballets and contemporary works!

Arts in the Park

Saturday, June 1
5:00-6:30 pm – new time this year!
Glen Providence Park Stage, State Street, Media
Rain date: Sunday, June 2*

Bring a blanket or chair, and relax on the lawn by the historical stage for an afternoon performance. After the ballet, head into Media for dinner and shopping, just two blocks away on State Street. As with all of our events, this performance is free and family-friendly.
