Nashville Ballet is excited to partner with TPAC’s HOT Season for Young People to present 72 Steps for school audiences during the 2019-2020 season. 72 Steps takes an empowering and celebratory look at the ratification of the 19th Amendment and the vital role Tennessee played in it. Patterson’s work transports classrooms and audiences to the early 1900s as camps in favor and opposition of suffrage frantically battle for support in the days leading up to the Tennessee legislature’s history-making vote. Depicting a fight that began with the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 and spanned over 72 years, this ballet transcends time in a rallying call to action designed to create dialogue surrounding the past and modern-day barriers to a unified and equitable society.
