This is off-topic to this thread, but when I saw the word "Ballet" in the message title, I had to respond.
A few years ago, we (the Josh Duffee Orchestra) performed as an on-stage pit orchestra of sorts for a Ballet Quad Cites production of an original dance composition entitled, "Blue River." The ballet performed to a live concert of Jean Goldkette/Bix songs, and I thought it was extremely well done. The choreography was by the then-manager of BQC.
Maybe someone can find a sponsor for a repeat of this at an upcoming Bix Fest?
