In the performance world, being a triple-threat usually means you can sing, dance, and act equally well. It also means that every actress of similar age is imagining you strung up in traction when they tell you to "break a leg."
Ib Andersen is a different kind of triple-threat, a celebrated dancer who directs and choreographs for Ballet Arizona. So it’s only fitting that Andersen will present three works in Director’s Choice.
Like a top chef doling out his favorite dishes, Andersen offers selections that hold personal appeal. This year’s mélange of delicious and delicate dances includes the starlight-drenched In the Night, by Broadway superstar Jerome Robbins, a condensed version of Marius Petipa’s 1881 Paquita, and Sueños, an original work featuring a largely male cast.
