Performance Series: The Face To Face

Hosted by Artistic Director Chiara Ajkun since 2003 in the intimacy of our studios, The Face To Face Series offers a close up view of the dancers, and the opportunity to take pictures and meet-and-greet the cast at the end of the show. Each performance lasts about one hour and has no intermission.


An alternative to Ajkun Ballet Theatre's more conventional Theater Shows, this Series is enjoyed by worldly audience members and first-theater goers alike because of the art immersion in the story and elegance of the dances and the exclusive experience to connect with artists and dance enthusiasts. 


General seating. Will Call opens one hour before the performance and audience is seated 30 minutes from showtime.
