New Orleans Gets Its Dance Back

The New Orleans Ballet Association has got up and running again. “NOBA lost most of its season and its chief venue, the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts, to Hurricane Katrina. It also was forced to suspend its educational outreach efforts temporarily with thousands of area youth. Help has poured in from patrons, volunteers and artists, including the New York-based Parsons company, which waived fees for its Wednesday and Thursday performances.”
