How about starting the holiday weekend with a ballet lesson?
San Jose’s City Lights Theater Company is continuing The Next Stage, its weekly series of free online events, with the “Bubbles and Ballet Happy Hour” tonight at 8 p.m.
Dancer and actress Christine Zillman, who has starred in multiple City Lights productions including Green Day’s American Idiot
, will be teaching the basics of ballet. She will go over feet and arm positions, technique fundamentals and simple combos. City Lights suggests having socks, a ledge or chair to use as a barre, and a festive beverage on hand.
