Ballet West Gala, Snapshots and more

Once a month I'll be giving you the low down on all things dance in Salt Lake City. The month of November is jam packed with dance performances to see, but before I go into the details of all that is happening this month, I wanted to say a fond farewell to dance critic Dorothy Stowe. She was the full time Deseret News opera, dance and performing arts critic from 1976-1995 and continued to write reviews for several years after. She also wrote for Opera News and Dance magazine and organized the Temple Square Concert series as well as produced several KBYU radio shows.
