It's nice to have some GOOD news about a ballet company for a change. There are on today's Links thread (thanks to Ari):
(A news article about expanded performances):
and a related news blurb announcing the company's "Coppelia" for the spring.

Making a Difference
Ballet Arizona artistic director Ib Andersen has built the once near-bankrupt company into a troupe on the verge of greatness. The dancers have sharpened their gifts on ambitious productions of Romantic classics and contemporary works. Last year's Mosaik, Andersen's full-length original ballet, made dance fans sit up and pay attention. Observe this season whether the Southwest's only fully professional ballet will become the region's answer to Pacific Northwest Ballet and Miami City Ballet.
