Amarillo, TX - Lone Star Ballet made announcements Tuesday morning that will affect the dance company's future. For the first time ever, the Lone Star Ballet is implementing a new position known as Artistic Director.
Vicki McLean was recognized as Artistic Director earlier today. Currently, she holds the title of Director of Dance, which means she has a hand in the ballet's education efforts through it's academy. Being honored with the title of Artistic Director means that she has a large role in the direction Lone Star Ballet takes for its future endeavors.
