Ballet West Promotions


Recommended Posts

I discovered recently Artistic Director Adam Sklute has handed out numerous promotions to dancers at Ballet West.

After the closing night of Ballet West's Mixed Rep. '9 Sinatras' Adam Sklute had all the dancers on stage for the announcements.

I apologize if any of the information here is incorrect but this is what I've jotted down.

Promoted to Principal - Michael Bearden

Promoted to Soloist - Kate Crews

Promoted to Soloist - Jason Linsley

Promoted to Demi-Soloist - Victoria Lock

Promoted to Demi-Soloist - Jacqueline Straughan

Promoted to Demi-Soloist - Jason Chinea

Promoted to Demi-Soloist - Chris Sellars

Promoted to 2nd Year Apprentice From BWII - Aidan Diskin

Dancers leaving the company are Edward McPherson, Jeff Herbig & Nicholas Smith. I believe Nick Scott & Steven Davis have also retired.

Ballet West has also hired Principal Dancer Romi Beppu from Boston Ballet.

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?
