Ballet is For Horses

Reminiscent of what happens when you combine one unhealthy childhood obsession with ballet, one contorted, plastic My Little Pony that you were determined to make dance, and one immeasurable love of nobility brought on by Cinderella -- The World Famous Lipizzaner Stallions are all of these things come to life. Dating back to the 16th century, the Lipizzaner Stallions are known for their strong breed, unbelievably muscular hindquarters, and ability to employ a technique called “airs above the ground” in their equine ballet. Performing across the globe, the stallions will saddle up stateside at the BankAtlantic Center (2555 Panther Parkway, Sunrise) tonight at 6 p.m.

If it is the My-Little-Pony-come-to-life fantasy you still crave -- your very own Lipizzaner is available for upwards of $15,000. But in the meantime, tickets for tonight’s show range from $20.50 to $27.50. Call 954-835-8000, or visit
