Works in Progress: Expressing Music Through Ballet
10/09/2013   Reported By: Susan Sharon

A classically-trained ballerina who danced with the New York City Ballet in her youth, Linda McArthur Miele has taught thousands of Maine children how to dance. As artistic director of the Maine State Ballet, she's entertained generations of families with Nutcracker performances at the Merrill Auditorium every year. And when she's not teaching at her Falmouth dance school, Miele is always looking to her next big project. This week it's an original ballet based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale, The Little Mermaid. As part of our ongoing series, "Works in Progress," Susan Sharon has this profile.
