Do you know which ballet is credited for introducing pointework to the art form? What was the original name for the Pacific Northwest Ballet? In the movie “Center Stage”, what did Eva think prima ballerina Kathleen Donahue looked like? (La Sylphide, Pacific Northwest Dance Association, a gerbil.)

If you knew these answers and more, come to BSP Trivia night on the Eastside to show off your ballet knowledge. Winners of the night will receive bragging rights and PNB swag, including dress rehearsal tickets and signed pointe shoes! If you didn’t guess right, not to worry! Trivia Night is a great chance to learn more about the details and history of the artform.
