State Street Ballet Piles Up Dance Awards

Performance of 'Carmen' collects honors for choreographer, two dancers.

State Street Ballet has been honored by the Beverly Hills Outlook DanceAwards2007, with recognition for William Soleau as best choreographer and Bayaraa Badamsambuu as runner-up for best male dancer. The State Street Ballet itself was honored as a runner-up for best dance troupe, for its performance of Carmen at the John Anson Ford Theater in Hollywood last year.

Both Soleau and Badamsambuu received the honors for the Carmen performance. Corina Gill, formerly of the State Street Ballet, was named runner-up for best female dancer in her performance as Carmen. Gill subsequently joined Los Angeles Ballet.

Soleau has choreographed a lavish production of Carmina Burana for the State Street Ballet. It will be performed at Santa Barbara’s newly reopened Granada Theatre in May.

For a complete list of all the winners and runners-up, visit the Beverly Hills Outlook.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
