This last May, Ballet West partnered with HMG Productions and ten local boutiques to feature Ballet West dancers in the Couture in Motion runway show. The event was hosted in the company’s own production warehouse, located in the historic warehouse district of Salt Lake City. Three hundred guests participated in the event, touring the warehouse space, visiting with artists and board members, and watching over ninety looks come down the runway. Landis Salon did hair and makeup on the dancers and Brio Tuscan Grille generously donated hors d’oeuvres, dessert, and cocktails.
The day wasn’t just a nice stroll down the runway. The dancers spent the first part of their day receiving tips on their strut down the runway and learning the order of the different looks. After a food break the dancers spent a few hours on their bums, moving from multiple make-up and hair stations. I was the only Ballet West dancer in my own outfit for the evening because I was given the opportunity to photograph the whole event. I’m so grateful because so many shots came out. Below are just a few photos from the night.
