Ballet Of a Masculine Sort
Nineteen hairy men in tutus will plié into Westhampton Beach this week when the male comedy ballet troupe, Les Ballets Grandiva, comes to the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center on Sunday at 8 p.m. Blending grace and beauty with contemporary choreography, these "ballerinas" approach some of history's greatest roles with flamboyant aplomb, from Romeo and Juliet to Pocahontas. The performance may be comedic but the dancers are anything but amateur, having performed with today's major dance companies including Russia's Kirov Ballet and the American Ballet Theater and trained at esteemed institutions such as the Julliard School. Tickets are $70/$55/$40. Call the box office at 288-1500.
