Open air ballet performances, free, in Eastmoreland: Sellwood's Classical Ballet Academy is inaugurating an "Open Air Performance Series" today, from noon until 7 p.m., on eight open-air stages set up along S.E. Reed College Place in Eastmoreland between Tolman Street and Bybee Boulevard. Dancers age 3 to 18 will be presenting excerpts from eight famous classical ballets – Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Alice in Wonderland, Don Quixote, Coppelia, The Firebird, Cinderella, and Snow White – until 5:30 p.m.; and then contemporary choreography will be presented to music of famous composers from 6 till 7:30 p.m. The southbound side of Reed College Place will be closed to vehicles during this time, so community members can travel between the stages to enjoy the free mini performances. Free, but a small donation would be welcome, to support the performances.JULY 3
