Exhibition Opening

Join us as we unveil the Museum’s newest exhibition, Gender Neutral which explores the history of non-traditional gender roles in dance from the eighteenth century to the present day. The centerpiece of the exhibition is the internationally-renowned Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo. This all-male, comic ballet company was founded in 1974 on the heels of New York's Stonewall riots and has a diverse cult following around the world.

Presented in collaboration with the Saratoga Performing Arts Center and The Egg, the entire Trockadero cast will be in attendance at the exhibition opening as a preview to their performance at The Egg in Albany on Friday, April 20 at 8:00 pm. A preperformance talk presented by the Dance Alliance will begin at 7:15 pm.
