We all love the great outdoors on sunny days, but there’s a lot more to the summer season in Dallas. Cultural art performances rage-the-stage with classic ballet and themed symphony, while eclectic concert series thrive at the zoo and arboretum. Kids can even mix sports with brainiac activities on a dedicated Discovery Day in June. Check out these ways to drench yourself in a Dallas-style summer.
Classic Ballet, Symphony and Musicals
The Winspear Opera House kicks off the summer season with both traditional and contemporary ballet performances as well as poignant productions such as Beautiful – The Carol King Musical. No matter how many times you’ve seen Swan Lake, it never fails to inspire during its three-day June run at the Winspear. For a dramatic twist on ballet art, snag some tickets to the culturally creative Alonzo King Line Ballet on June 9th. Head over to Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center for an evening of Hollywood at the Symphony featuring scores from blockbuster Hollywood films.
Music fills the open-air venues, parks and concert halls of Dallas throughout the seasons – but only in summer can you kick back for ongoing concert series such as Safari Nights at the Dallas Zoo. You’ll enjoy family-friendly local performing artists and tribute bands every Saturday in June. The Dallas Arboretum opens its lush lawn for music lovers every Thursday in June for its Cool Thursdays Concert Series. Buy your tickets early and remember to bring a chair or blanket.
Sports Science and Budding Botanists
It’s no secret that Perot Museum of Nature and Science is a favorite with all ages, but the Discovery Days: Sports Science event on June 9th is for the kiddos. It’s the perfect way to inspire interest in both science and sports as they merge through challenging mental and physical activities. For a five-day immersion in the world of botanics and plants, kids in grades 4 and 5 can dig in at the Seedling Scientists Summer Camp at Texas Discovery Gardens. They’ll also take a field trip to the Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park.
