On Aug. 1, Ib Andersen began the process of choreographing "Cinderella" with dancers Jillian Barrell and Russell Clarke.
Two-and-a-half months before its premiere, Andersen started the slow process of creating the steps that Ballet Arizona will perform this week.
"It took me six weeks to choreograph all of it," said Andersen, Ballet Arizona's artistic director. "Just bulldozing away. Now for the past couple of weeks, we are tweaking and refining it."
