I recently saw this company during its small towns tour through California. They're a delightful little company with young but beautiful dancers.

But what impressed me most is that this company has been successful for so long, since 1996. And it occurred to me that they fit almost perfectly the model proposed in my favorite book, "Good to Great," with three altruistic leaders, founder Bebe Schweppe, ED Jean-Philippe Malaty and AD Tom Mussbrucker, all trusting fully in each other and putting the company first.

The fact that none of them choreograph but instead enjoying bringing choreographers to the company is a testament to the containment of their personal egos.

Aspen Sante Fe Ballet is in Dallas this weekend with performances tonight and tomorrow night.

Unfortunately, I think they're having trouble putting butts in seats because I just got a notice that they're giving 50% off tickets for people who buy tickets at the door and mention the promotion.

It doesn't help that they're competing with both the professional hockey and basketball teams during playoff season...

For 50% off though, I may drag *my* poor butt there to check them out...
