Fort Worth Business Press (June 17, 2017) – Now in its 48th year, Ballet Concerto Inc.’s Summer Dance Concert moves to The Heart of the Ranch at Clearfork after 12 years at the Trinity Park Pavilion. This year’s program features four short ballets, including two world premieres.
Ballet professionals are fond of taking classes wherever they are in the world, constantly looking for new ideas and techniques. So it’s no wonder that two summers ago in Paris, Fort Worth’s grande dame of ballet, Margo Dean, decided to take a class. It’s something that she has done regularly – maybe 10 times in Paris alone, but also in the south of France in Cannes, in Rio de Janeiro and Madrid, in London and New York. And even in Cuba.
Nothing stopped her when she opened the Margo Dean School of Ballet in her hometown of Fort Worth nearly 60 years ago. Nor when she started the Fort Worth Ballet Association, which is now Texas Ballet Theater, in the 1950s. Nor when she started Ballet Concerto Inc., a nonprofit performing arts and educational organization that is now in its 48th year.
