Ballet Idaho pirouettes into their sophomore season under the tutelage of artistic director Peter Anastos with his take on a classic, “Swan Lake, Idaho!”, the comedic “Yes, Virginia, Another Piano Ballet” and a redux of last season’s Fred and Ginger hit, “Footage.” According to Executive Director Julie Numbers-Smith, the company’s excitement is palpable. “The triumph of the first season is seeing a longtime dream come true. Since our separation from Eugene Ballet, we have a brand new artistic director and a brand new company. This season, we brought on three new principal dancers and brought back everyone we wanted from last season. For the first time, we are a real resident company.”
