Join us for three of our favorite things...beer, ballet and bubbly! Each beerballet&bubbly event brings you behind-the-scenes, letting you observe a working rehearsal of an upcoming production in our intimate England Studio Theater. Then, grab a beer and network with friends and dancers at a casual reception in our Fannie Mae Gallery.
