Mississippi River Boat Ballet

Part of the 3rd Annual Riverfront Festival, the Mississippi River Boat Ballet promises unexpected and previously unseen beauty. The river will be the stage, the dancers will be boats: actual barges, bicycle pontoon boats, canoes, dragon boats, kayaks, racing sculls, rafts, row boats, sail boats, stand up paddle boards, tugboats, wind surfers, vintage yachts…all choreographed by Patrick Scully, assisted by Kalen Keir.

Anyone interested in being part of the boat ballet is encouraged to sign up above under tickets, you may also contact Patrick Scully at  You do not need to have a boat to participate. We have a range of boats for which we are looking for people to paddle. You can see a video of an earlier Boat Ballet choreographed by Patrick at
