Re: "Boston Ballet Turns 50" in your Sept 19th edition:
While the article was informative and interesting, it neglected to acknowledge a Boston College alum, Betsi Graves, BC '04, who has made major contributions to the local dance scene and was a teacher at the Boston Ballet School. Betsi was a leader of Dance Ensemble while here at BC, and after graduating started a local professional dance company, Urbanity Dance, which has in its first 5 years garnered wide praise especially for Graves' innovative and provocative choreography, and for Urbanity's social programming, teaching dance in local schools. BC alums continue to make important contributions to art and social change.
