Nashville Ballet recently announced its 2016 – 2017 season, which includes an uncovering of “untold stories” in its lineup along with the return of a couple family favorites.

“Someone once told me that our ballet company is ‘very human,’ and that particularly struck me because that’s exactly our goal at Nashville Ballet,” says Paul Vasterling, Nashville Ballet artistic director and CEO. “We want to connect with audiences on a very human level to allow them to feel something authentic and real. It’s when we open our worlds a little and allow ourselves to see things from a different perspective that we’re able to grow, and that’s the inspiration behind this season.”
