BA Leadership Extend Contracts Until 2021

Yesterday evening at 5 p.m., Ballet Austin staff, Board members and supporters gathered in the board room upstairs to celebrate the ten-year contract renewal of Cookie Ruiz and Stephen Mills, Ballet Austin’s Executive and Artistic Directors, respectively.


In addition to signing their contracts, the Ballet Austin Board also made a surprise announcement about their decision to dedicate the newest dance studio to Cookie and Stephen. The studio will aptly be named the “Mills/Ruiz Legacy Studio”.  You can see a mockup of the plaque that will hang outside the studio below.


Cookie and Stephen have held their leadership posts here at BA for a successful 13 and 10 years, respectively, and here at Ballet Austin, we personally cannot wait for another 10 more. Congratulations to the both of you!
