The Legend of the Poinsettia
RICHMOND, VA. (WTVR): The Latin Ballet of Virginia celebrates its 14th Anniversary of performing The Legend of the Poinsettia. The story is based on the Mexican legend about a young girl who discovers the true spirit of giving. Because little Maria is poor and can’t offer a material gift, she picks a handful of weeds that magically turns into crimson flowers and so the legend was born of giving Poinsettias during the holidays.
Performances are Thursday through Sunday, 10:30 am & 7:30pm Thursday & Friday; 3pm & 7:30pm Saturday and 3pm Sunday at the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen. Tickets are $15 children, students, seniors and military and $20 for adults. To learn more about Latin Ballet classes and performances, visit www.latinballet.com or call 804-356-3876.
