Eh? The Ballet blitz

Consider this the Minnesota Ballet’s Eh? takeover:

First of all, the ballet’s annual Wine & Cheese fundraiser is 5:30-8 p.m. Thursday at the Depot’s Great Hall, 506 W. Michigan St. The event includes hors d’oeuvres, a song and dance interlude and a live auction that includes a coveted spot in the 2015 Celebrity Dance Challenge.

As for the Chee-pun: One of the items in the auction is a watercolor by internationally renowned, Duluth-based artist Cheng-Khee Chee, who will be on hand for signing.

Tickets are $35 in advance at, Jitters Coffee and Tea House, Waters of Superior, A Touch of Plasch and at Keyport Liquor in Superior or $40 at the door.

And since we’re already in a tutu frame of mind:

The School of the Minnesota Ballet celebrates Dance Day from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Sunday at the Depot’s Great Hall.

Upper-level students will demo dance techniques and perform works choreographed by instructors. There will be excerpts from “Swan Lake” and “Sleeping Beauty.”

The event is free.
