Ballet Pacifica Lives

Southern California’s Ballet Pacifica isn’t dead after all. The company is going to present a new story ballet and is looking for a new artistic dirctor. “This is the first news about the future of the 42-year-old chamber-size ballet troupe since late January, when Christina Lyon, a former dancer with American Ballet Theatre, resigned as artistic director. Lyon had been in the job only seven weeks. Her departure came just days after the board canceled Ballet Pacifica’s spring repertory season and its respected Pacifica Choreographic Project.”
