You can't get more romantic than taking in a performance of West Michigan's most divine and renowned ballet company on the day of Saint Valentine. How about if we add rubies to the mix? (Because diamonds = totally played out.) In a collected performance piece that combines the best of three solid works – specifically, George Balanchine's "Rubies," José Limón's "The Moor's Pavane," and Mario Radacovský's "Bolero" – our favorite Grand Rapids toe-pointers are poised to set hearts aflutter by flying through the air at dizzying heights, no strings attached. Best of all, buying a ticket to this breathtaking show is likely to segue well into buying a ticket for "relations-ville," if you catch our meaning. Ballet, you've never looked more beautiful.
