Do It. Silverlake Contemporary Ballet.

Thanks to Kanye West and Black Swan, we've got more than our usual share of ballet these past few months. But if you're still itching for some more (hopefully not in the growing black feathers in your back kind of way), it's time to get out there and check out some live, contemporary ballet in Silverlake.

Ballet smack dab in the middle of the Eastside? It's true. The Silverlake Contemporary Ballet is an non-profit organization set to premiere this weekend with a huge production combining all the elegance of contemporary ballet, with a Silverlake twist. The night will feature live dance performances paired with music from indie/alternative artists like Jeff Buckley, Bjork and Explosions in the Sky. Local band the Jenks will be playing live too. And there'll be art, photography, video projections and more. So even if you don't consider yourself a hardcore ballet fan, this would be a great way to work your way into the world. And at $6 a ticket (currently standing room only; seated tickets have sold out), what have you got to lose?

The Silverlake Contemporary Ballet debut is taking place this Saturday at 8pm at Studio A, located at 2306 Hyperion Ave. in Silverlake. Click here for more info.
