One of the most delightful parties of the summer season was in late July when Aspen Santa Fe Ballet put on its summer gala called “Dancing With the Aspen Stars” at the Hotel Jerome.

Members of the ballet troupe partnered in dance with “Aspen Stars” such as real estate mogul Scott Davidson, Aspen Magazine editor Janet O’Grady, socialite Betty Gates, Aspenite Tina Shaw, Aspen Music Festival director Alan Fletcher, socialite Carolyn Powers, Aspen Art Museum director Heidi Zuckerman Jacobson, Anderson Ranch Arts Center director Hunter O’Hanian, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass director James Horowitz.

Susan Davis, a graduate of Aspen High School, is a freshman at American University in Washington, D.C.
