At a time in our history when virtual connection is often the only way to reach people, Utah’s premiere ballet company offers Winter Streaming: The Best of Ballet West, a six-week series of archival footage.
“I have selected ballets that show the diversity of repertoire and talent of our dancers for this series. These works mean so much to me, and to our Company, and I am happy to share them free of charge. Perhaps by doing so, we cultivate future ballet patrons and inspire young dancers. It is exciting, in this era of stay-at-home-performing-arts, that we are reaching new and diverse audiences.”
Artistic Director, Ballet West
Ballet West is offering these performances to stream free of charge on their YouTube and Facebook pages and each will be complimented by a Director’s Pointe from Artistic Director Adam Sklute.
We will update this page with the videos as they become available, so check back regularly for the most up-to-date information.
