Ballet Austin – Wow!

I had a meeting with Cookie Ruiz over at Ballet Austin.  I got the chance to tour the new Butler Dance Education Center and all I can say is, wow.  Downtown Austin just got a whole lot more exciting.  If you get a chance, check out their grand opening celebration this Sunday.   The Paramount is hosting most of their season this year while the Long Center is completed.  I hear it’s still on time for a spring opening…

On Saturday be sure to join us for the second annual Arts Run – Austin’s most entertaining 5K and Kids K.  Runners are encouraged to dress as their favorite film or stage star…last year I came as Sponge Bob Square Pants.  What will I be this year?  Runners last year told us this was one of the best runs in town…food, live music, even a magician running in a straight jacket!

Speaking of favorite film stars – the Paramount is screening Gone With the Wind this weekend and upstairs we’ll be showcasing a collection of costumes from the movie.  The collection has been flown in by American Airlines especially for our screening…
