Lucky Ballet West to get Romi Beppu. She's a beautiful dancer!
Also Houston Ballet's Principal Sarah Webb has agreed to join Ballet West next season as a guest principal for 10 weeks. According to the Salt Lake Tribune, Mrs. Webb will be performing in the annual Gala and The Tempest.
Possibly a sign of the future?
