Ballet San Jose Stays Alive
SF Gate reports that Ballet San Jose, headed by former ABT Principal Dancer José Manuel Carreño, raised $640,000 in the last 10 days to stave off financial collapse. The company needed to raise $500,000 to avoid a shut down, and that figure was raised Saturday largely to a grant from the city of San Jose. Legally known as Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley, the company will change its name to Ballet Silicon Valley in September.
