The Shreveport Metropolitan Ballet is marking its 40-year history with a commissioned series of photos that asks -- how do you tutu? The campaign features popular men of Shreveport sporting tutus in creative ways. The ballet’s executive director Kate Pedrotty said at a Tuesday news conference that her organization is trying to rally community support in a unique way.

“We’ve had to become I think a little bit more creative in the way that we fundraise, and we’ve definitely tried to move away from a dependence on grants or other public funds that are available," Pedrotty said.
