FEARLESS: Ballet Showcase Fall 2015

The Ballet Department at the University of Utah has a history of excellence dating from 1951. In this groundbreaking year, Willam F.

Each academic year the Ballet Department has several magnificent performances, including Utah Ballet, Ballet Showcase, Jazz Concert, Ballet Senior Show etc.
