A ballerina's graceful balance is inspiring to aspiring dancers, captivating to houses of cards, and vexing to bulldozers razing cliffside condor habitats. Dwell on adroit appendages with today's Groupon for one ticket to see Best of the Bay 2! at the Saroyan Theatre, presented by Fresno's Lively Arts Foundation at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, January 22. Select between two options:

- For $24, you get one reserved ticket in orchestra rows A–M (up to a $46.75 value).
The nonprofit Lively Arts Foundation aims to put Fresno on the map as a central Californian cultural center. Bask in a radiant revue of classical and contemporary ballet that snatches prime talent from the Bay Area and deposits it on your front porch, like a stork carrying a wriggling bag full of aluminum cans. Best of the Bay 2! features classic pieces from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty, performed by members of Ballet San Jose and Peninsula Ballet, respectively. Robert Moses' Kin, Alonzo King's LINES Ballet, and Michael Lowe round out the program with a series of contemporary dance works, causing neck hairs to stand up straight and heartily applaud.
