A six-city tour took Ballet West to sold-out audiences and standing ovations in several New England cities and at Ann Arbor and Detroit, Mich. during early October. The full company of 43 dancers performed "Giselle" and "Romeo and Juliet."

"Ballet West is not just a regional company. We're out there competing with companies from all over the world," said Susan Barrell, company manager, adding that this tour marked the company as a cultural ambassador for Utah.
