Ballet B.C. has more reason to dance: at its annual general meeting this week, it announced that it had ended its 2013-14 fiscal year with an unprecedented fourth consecutive annual operating surplus.
“I am proud of the strength and diversity of skills at Ballet BC,” said executive director Branislav Henselmann in a press statement. "The entire company can confidently share in the numerous achievements of the past years that have so rewardingly culminated with another successful fiscal year in 2013-14. Ballet BC’s continued upward momentum puts us in a unique position to continue moving this company to new levels of even higher excellence."
The company launches its season November 6 to 8 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre with No. 29, a program of contemporary work that includes a world premiere by rising Spanish choreographer Fernando Magadan and a piece by Vancouver's Lesley Telford.
