What You'll Get
A ballerina's graceful leap defies the rules of gravity, just as a wide receiver's celebratory fireworks display defies the rules of professional football. Watch rules bend with today's Groupon to the Ohio Dance Theater in Elyria. Choose between the following options:
• For $9, you get one mezzanine ticket to The Fairy Forest on Saturday, August 20 at 2 p.m. (up to an $18 value).

The Ohio Dance Theater thrills audiences with classical and contemporary professional ballet performances for people of all ages. This season concludes with a two-part celebration, beginning with an original fairy tale entitled The Fairy Forest, written by playwright Jonathan Wilhelm. In this humorous ballet, the heroine Fairy Pixie jetés and pirouettes through the forest while avoiding the dark fairy Crabbina, who has been outcast from her home and wreaks havoc on the forest much in the way that a puppy wreaks havoc on a closet full of shoes.
Later that evening, the Ohio Dance Theater will present its "Season Encore Performance", which showcases favorite pieces and choreography from throughout the season. Highlights include Balanchine's Valse-Fantaisie; a guest performance by choreographer Marie Zvosec, dancing one of her own pieces; and artistic director Denise Gula's Tabula Rasa. Ohio Dance Theater is only opening the orchestra for this show, ensuring that every patron has a close-up view of every dancer's moves, face, and marionette strings during the performance.
