Now through Saturday, the Oregon Ballet Theater is holding Nutcracker rehearsals for the public to watch. It's called OBT Exposed, and it's happening right downtown, at Director Park (next to the Fox Tower).
These incredibly talented dancers are leaping, pliéing and pirouetting on an outdoor stage and everyone is invited to take a peek. There's no charge for the event. Here are the details.
When: July 18 - 23. Times vary. Check the schedule.
What: In addition to watching rehearsals, OBT Exposed is offering other events such as free dance classes, a movie screening, and lunch on a first-come, first-served basis on Friday.
Where: Director Park, SW Park & Yamhill in downtown Portland
