Last week, Ballet West named an Academy scholarship in honor of the legendary Department of Ballet Distinguished Professor Emerita, Bené Arnold. One of the most respected and distinguished ballet teachers in the United States, Ms. Arnold danced for the San Francisco Ballet and then became their Ballet Mistress. In 1962 she moved to Salt Lake City and helped guide Ballet West through its infancy with Mr. C in the role of Ballet Mistress. Ms. Arnold still returns to teach at the Summer Intensive and to assist with choreography.
