Ballet West Has New Artistic Director

Salt Lake City, UT – Adam Sklute hasn't found a place to live yet, but the new artistic director for Ballet West is already on the job, meeting with dancers, donors and civic leaders. Sklute was recently named to the post after an 8-month intensive international search from a pool of 38 candidates. Sklute came to Ballet West by way of the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago where he was an Associate Artistic Director, and a dancer for many years. He says he'd like to create a new vision of dance in the American West.
