Minnesota Ballet Still Recovering from the Storm

Most of the Costumes Were Saved from the Rubble

Minnesota Ballet has been working out of temporary office spaces and dance studios, since the storm that caused the Board of Trade Building Chimney to collapse, back in July.

Thousands of dollars worth of costumes had been buried under rubble, but luckily, most of the costumes were able to be restored. Some of those costumes will be featured at the Minnesota Ballet History Exhibit that Started Tuesday.

“We were quite surprised at how well they turned out. She had minor sewing adjustments to the costumes but we were really pleased that we were able to bring them back to life,” said Mary Gummerson, the Executive Managing Director of Minnesota Ballet.

Minnesota Ballet Representatives say they are hoping to be back at the Board of Trade Building Chimney.
