5th Annual Healthcare Professionals Night at the Ballet

Thursday, March 26th was the 5th Annual Healthcare Professionals Night at the ballet.  This event is an annual fundraiser for the ballet which allows professionals in the health care industry the opportunity to network, provide appreciation to valued clients or staff all while supporting Ballet West.  Guests that evening were able to enjoy the final dress rehearsal of Treasures of Ballets Russes the night before it opened to the general public.  The evening included a dessert intermission reception with delicious cookies donated by My Dough Girl and a Q & A session during the second intermission moderated by Adam Sklute with comments by our Principal Artist, Christopher Ruud, and one of Ballet West’s Physical Therapists, Carmela Nielsen.  A special surprise that evening was the final dress rehearsal was dedicated to Carmela Nielsen, a Ballet West Physical Therapist, for all she has done for our artists.  Carmela was touched by this honor.  Below is a photo of Carmela with the Ballet West Artists after their final bow the evening of the dress rehearsal..
