A Bittersweet Goodbye to Mimi, Amber, Jackson, and Anna

Recommended Posts

Sadly, four of Ballet Arizona’s dancers will not be returning next year – all moving on in different directions.

Mimi Tompkins, who rose so quickly from neophyte to dance so many principal roles including Juliet, Aurora, and the Sylph, will be returning to school at Columbia in the fall.

Amber Lewis and Jackson Dwyer are going to Hong Kong Ballet. We will dearly miss Amber’s on-stage (and off-stage) personality (especially as Gamzatti), and will always remember Jackson’s revealing portrayal of Apollo.

Anna Grunewald will be moving to Miami City Ballet. Although Anna was with BAZ for only one season, she danced solo roles such as Songbird Fairy and Princess Florine in Sleeping Beauty.
