Ballet Idaho's Rock and Roll Ball

Friday, Sept. 23 at Powerhouse Events Center


Ever wonder what classical ballet would look like set to the music of the Rolling Stones? Ballet Idaho's Rock and Roll Ball is your opportunity to indulge in the sweet sounds of The Stones melded with the fluidity of Ballet Idaho's talented dancers.

The main performance, "Paint It Black," is choreographed by principal dancer Ryan Jolicoeur-Nye and features Ballet Idaho company members. Local artist Patrick Hunter will be painting during the performance, inspired by the music and the movement.

Hors d'oeuvres and dinner prepared by chef Bill Green will be served buffet-style around a '55 Chevy under an outdoor tent. There will also be a live auction of vacations fit for rock stars, including six nights and seven days at Penthouse Punta Mita in Mexico and four nights at the Four Seasons Resorts Lana'i at Manele Bay in Hawaii. Tickets are available at or by calling 208-426-1110.
