New Ballet Company Rises In L.A.

“Aiming to become what artistic directors Thordal Christensen and Colleen Neary call ‘a major company that belongs to L.A. — that has a local flavor at an international level,’ the newly formed Los Angeles Ballet has announced its first season of performances and placed subscription tickets on sale… The current roster includes 21 resident professional dancers on 21-week contracts. Home is the Malibu Performing Arts Center. The projected annual budget is $1.7 million.”
