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 $30, you get a one-year subscription package at Verb Ballets in Shaker Heights (a $65 value). The package includes the following:

  • Invitations to in-studio viewings
  • Opportunity to see works in development in the Fresh Inventions series
  • Subscription to the e-newsletter
  • Tickets to the following shows:

Now in its tenth season as Cleveland's National Repertory Dance Company, Verb Ballets promotes public appreciation and passion for contemporary dance with a variety of live performances, educational programs, and community outreach efforts. Led by director Dr. Margaret Carlson, the theme for this season is storytelling, and the three included shows embody the best way to see a yarn gracefully spun from the body besides hiring an arachnid novelist. American Lore explores classic continental legends through dance, from a profile of definitive American composer Aaron Copland and revisitation of Martha Graham's famed "Appalachian Spring" to a world premiere of "Billy the Kid," choreographed by Ginger Thatcher. On February 17, Alternative Moves explores the boundaries of religious fervor with Chung-Fu Chang's mystic tale from Taiwan and Doris Humphrey's "Dance of the Chosen," about the Shakers for whom Shaker Heights is named. Finally, select a date (April 26, 27, or 28) to see Verb Ballets' reimagining of the classic Spanish opera Carmen, recomposed with a focus on drum and strings and emboldened with expressive contemporary dance.

Beyond these three chances to see stories and limbs unfold, a yearlong subscription includes invitations to special in-studio viewings and special events at Verb Ballets' new Shaker Heights home. Boogie buffs can peruse the e-newsletter for news and events, like chances to see still-developing works in the Fresh Invention series or instructions on performing the safety dance with or without hats.

Customer Reviews

Thank you for allowing me to expouse my young niece who is a dancer herself now for 6 years ( 10 year old ) to a professional dance company that I could afford. We loved every performance and couldn't wait until the next one on our subscription. I took my girlfriend to Carmen and we felt part of the show with the intimacy of the theatre!!
