Minnesota Ballet leaps to limelight of Mabel Tainter

From The Dunn County News (Minnesota)

Is there a more beautiful language than that spoken by the human body? The Minnesota Ballet will answer that question irrevocably when they perform at the Mabel Tainter Theater on Friday, Mar. 8 at 8 p.m.

This Duluth-based touring troupe has a national reputation that extends beyond the traditional pas de deux. With an eclectic mix of George Balanchine, Agnes de Mille and Anthony Tudor the troupe moves easily from classical ballet to exuberant swing and jazz dance.

[quote]Ballet plays it safe while entertaining faithful fans

V. Paul Virtucio, Duluth News Tribune

The Minnesota Ballet's midwinter performance Friday night was a concert for the faithful. The Duluth company put on a show that didn't impress as much as it simply entertained.

Minnesota Ballet features women choreographers in new show

Kyle Eller
Budgeteer News

Women are usually the center of attention in ballet — the ballerina is as iconic as any figure in arts. But being the focus onstage doesn’t always translate into running the show in the backstage work of choreography.
