In "Ballet 360 -- What Ballet Does Best II: Exotic Dreams," dance critic Alexandra Tomalonis uses video of well-known ballets to explore the craft of making a ballet -- in particular, ballets such as Scheherazade and La Bayadere in which dreams come to life on stage. Tomalonis teaches ballet history, art history and aesthetics at the Kirov Academy of Ballet in D.C. Saturday, Jan. 14, at 3 p.m. Kennedy Center Terrace Theater. Tickets are $15.
