    Thanks for the article. Just for today (Black Friday) the ballet tickets I selected are 25% off. Purchased two for my wife as a Christmas gift. She can take anyone she wishes but not me, thank you. I have never found anything that interests myself to attend the Burlington Performing Arts Centre. We as a family will be at the Oakville Centre for a performance of magic in December, for a 1/4 the price of ballet in Burlington. It is a shame that the Burlington PAC doesn’t seem to host family performances that my family as a whole can afford to attend.
