Port decorates tutu

Volunteers at the Port Theatre will be decorating a traditional tutu in honour of the National Ballet of Canada’s 60-year anniversary.

The Port Theatre tutu will become one of 60 – one to mark each year of the ballet’s existence – that will be on display with the national ballet. The volunteers chose a design that reflects the Salmon Coming Home carvings in the Port Theatre lobby. The tutu will be covered with dozens of lightly padded fish in an artistic, stylized fashion.

Nanaimo’s tutu will go on display at the Port Theatre when the national ballet performs Sept. 30.
