Since 2007, Ballet West has been under the brilliant and bold leadership of artistic director, Adam Sklute. He has shaped the dancers and stood the 53 year-old company on its head as well as its toes. He has re-created pieces with fresh costumes and set designs and reminded us that no performance so completely transcends us as dance. Ballet West first performed on the Eccles Center stage in 1998 for the theater’s grand opening. Nineteen seasons hence, the company delivers a striking encore on March 18 – works that will otherwise not be performed as a part of the Salt Lake City troupe’s season.
