Focus on Perspectives Lecture Series: Author Cristina Palmer: For Love of Dance: The Early Years of the UTEP Ballet
The curtain opens on Ingeborg Heuser, a young girl growing up in Nazi Germany - an era of unprecedented political and social upheaval. The spotlight follows her through the first decade of the ballet company she founded in El Paso in the 1950s. In an illustrated epilogue, the reader journeys through the next three and a half decades of our local ballet’s history to 2006, when the final production of the Nutcracker Ballet was presented at the Plaza Theater. For Love of Dance honors Ingeborg Heuser’s immeasurable contributions and those of many other respected El Pasoans, whose combined efforts promoted and advanced the arts in our community. It is a story that has never been told in so much detail.
