Steampunk Ballet at Ratha Con

We're continuing our glimpse of things to come at Ratha Con with Steampunk Ballet.

Steampunk is described as a reimagining of the Victorian steam-powered era with elements of sci-fi and fantasy. As the creator of Steampunk Ballet, Elizabeth Atwell, describes: "Steampunk Ballet is a raucous amalgamation of tutus, unexpected rhythms, and classically inspired choreography. Re-imagining ballet as an occasionally macabre, laced-with-whimsey, entertaining movement art, fair weather seasons take us wherever you are- bars, festivals, restaurants, and outdoor spaces" and now Ratha Con too!

Most of everyone is a big fan of steampunk nowadays, and anyone who loves the genre is going to love the Ballet as well. Even if you're not a big fan, this performance is a great way to get introduced into the awesome genre.

Steampunk Ballet can be found on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/steampunkballet). Keep checking their page and ours for more details about the performance as we get closer to Ratha Con. These are "not your typical bunheads."
