Ballet Memphis' Ammon Accepts Post in Colorado

Posted on Sun, May 6, 2007 at 4:00 AM

According to a story from DenverPost.com, Ballet Memphis choreographer Garrett Ammon has accepted a post as artistic director of Ballet Nouveau in Broomfield, Colorado, near Denver. His wife, Dawn Fay, also with Ballet Memphis, will act as associate artistic director. Ballet Nouveau is the second-largest company in Colorado.

Ammon, who joined Ballet Memphis in 1999, is recipient of Tennessee Arts Commission's 2007 Individual Artist Fellowship for Choreography. He choreographed Smile and Ellington. He also created "Interiorworks," the popular workshop performance of dances-in-progress that benefits Ballet Memphis' Artist's Resource Fund.

From the story: "Ammon and Fay sent their material to Ballet Nouveau in February, and the company quickly decided to use some of Ammon's work in its 2007-2008 season. Meetings last week in Broomfield sealed the deal. The couple said they instantly clicked with the staff, whose names and bios they had memorized."

Ammon and Fay will join the company in mid-August.
