ZIONS BANK AND BALLET WEST PRESENT STATEWIDE COSTUME TOUR
Beauty of Ballet West Costumes to Visit Select Zions Bank Branches

SALT LAKE CITY – July 9, 2015 – A gallery of glamour will tour Zions Bank branch locations July through October as Ballet West presents an exclusive exhibit of ballet costumes. Costumes from Giselle, Swan Lake, Vespri, and The Nutcracker will showcase handcrafted artistry in Zions Bank lobbies along the Wasatch Front.

The tour will begin at the Zions Bank Head Office lobby (One S. Main St.) on July 13, and will then travel from Ogden to Lehi, leading up to the exhibit’s homecoming in the lobby of the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre in November, which will coincide with the beginning of Ballet West’s 52nd Season.


“Zions Bank is a wonderful partner to Ballet West. They have a long history and passion for the arts in Utah and have always been particularly supportive of our Company,” said Scott Altman, Executive Director of Ballet West. “This is a unique and wonderful opportunity that will allow us to reach new audiences as customers will be able to see first-hand and up-close the artistry of their hometown ballet company.”

What many Utah residents may not know is the international acclaim given to Ballet West’s Costume Production Director, David Heuvel. A long-time member of Ballet West, Heuvel has won many awards and his work has been featured in film and television, most recently in Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off” video, watched over a half-billion times online. Heuvel has a team of four who personally make every costume shown in a Ballet West production. In an average year, that equates to hundreds of costumes individually stitched and tailored to fit dancers.

“Zions Bank is a proud supporter of Ballet West and the arts in Utah,” said Scott Anderson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Zions Bank. “The arts and business are not necessarily polar opposites. Both test the envelope of human creativity, intellect, energy and promise. Both seek to motivate, to produce, to achieve excellence, to grow and to unite. We are proud to offer this unique educational opportunity for those coming into our bank branches.”

The exhibit will be located in the bank lobbies and is open and free to the public. Visitors will also have the opportunity to enter their name to win a pair of season tickets for Ballet West’s 52nd Season, starting in November. The Season lineup includes: Iconic Classics, The Nutcracker, Romeo and Juliet, Beauty and the Beast, The Nijinsky Revolution, and Innovations 2016.
