Itís Adam Sklute.

Ballet West executive board chairman Dan Miller says Sklute was the perfect candidate for the job.
We had six final candidates whom we brought to Salt Lake City," said Miller. "And we had them teach company classes, train with the dancers and undergo an array of questioning from the staff, the dancers and the board. With every one, except Adam, we had some concerns. But he was the one that all of us agreed on."

Sklute also worked with Joffrey's marketing and development departments and worked with the board, said Miller. "That's something we were looking for as well. Ballet West has been able to operate in the black these past two years, and we want to continue."

Here's an article from deseetnews.com reporting the press conference at which Adam Sklute, formerly associate artistic director of the Joffrey, was introduced. (Thanks to dirac in today's Links.

Adam Sklute

Today in the Joffrey forum, Treefrog reports that Mark Goldweber will also be going to Ballet West, as Ballet Master. There's no mention of this in the article, however.

Any comments from our Ballet West posters -- or others?
