Join us Friday, April 12 from 5:30-8pm for Laurie and Michael’s Legacy: a special exhibit curated by Florida Ballet alumna, AnneMarie Echols. A senior Public History student at Flagler College, Ms. Echols is creating this exhibit as a final project. "The Florida Ballet: Laurie and Michael's Legacy", looks closely at the history of the very first professional ballet company in Florida. Brought forth on a strong foundation of family and love for the art of dance, The Florida Ballet has contributed immensely to the cultural landscape of Jacksonville. On display is an exciting collection of historic images, costumes, videos, and props that portray the institution's history in an interesting and exciting manner. Focusing on three main periods, the exhibit highlights the lives of The Florida Ballet's founders, Laurie and Michael Byrd.
