FREE Live Contemporary Ballet Performance at 111 Minna This Friday

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

The last time I saw any type of dance performance in San Francisco, it was The Nutcracker, it was almost a year ago and it was pretty expensive (which is why I generously let an out-of-town relative foot the bill).  Generally, though, there are several smaller, yet prestigious dance companies in the city that offer cheap-to-FREE performances from time to time, and Post:Ballet is one of them.

This Friday from 5pm-9pm at 111 Minna, Post:Ballet is hosting a FREE event for the 21+ crowd (sorry, babies) that includes a live contemporary ballet performance choreographed by Robert Dekkers, screenings of a locally-shot dance film and several photography exhibits.  Sounds like the perfect time to knock out a bunch of culture at once or woo someone you’ve been trying to impress with your worldliness, all while NOT spending a million dollars like some people might have accidentally done at the Treasure Island Music Festival last weekend.  Time for some major damage control that doesn’t involve staying in and making a dent in the couch while watching Thintervention with Jackie Warner.

Live Contemporary Ballet Performance and Photography Exhibits at 111 Minna Gallery Friday, October 22, 5pm-9pm 111 Minna St. (btwn 2nd & New Montgomery) FREE (21+)

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
