With leaps and bounds, ballet marks new town pavilion’s debut

Saturday, May 8 was the first event hosted at the newly constructed pavilion at Crellin Park on Route 66 in Chatham. The Punctilious Mr. P’s Place Card Co’s The Joy Economy, based in Old Chatham, presented Chevalier Ballet in a program of classical and contemporary ballet. The program also included performances by local children who took a free dance class earlier in the day with the company. The performance Saturday evening had limited capacity to ensure social distancing and the audience and performers wore masks. Mr. P’s co-founders Karen Suen-Cooper and Martin Cooper organized the event and thanked the Town Board and Town Recreation Director Michael West for use of the park.
