Former Ballet West dancer and star of New York City Ballet, Bart Cook was honored by the University of Utah today with the “Distinguished Alumni Award”.  The ceremony was held at the University today but Mr. Cook still took the time to get over to the Capitol Theatre to watch our run though of Balanchine’s CHACONNE which was staged for Ballet West by his wife Maria Calagari, who was also a New York City Ballet star.  Mr. Cook made some helpful suggestions with CHACONNE.  He will continue to teach master classes at the University through the weekend.
