Ballet movie watchers might believe that dancers are a bunch of dicks, stabbing each other in the back and pulling Tonya Harding-style sabotage moves. But Boise dance companies showed off a more-collaborative side when Jason Hartley and Phyllis Rothwell Affrunti assembled the Boise Dance Co-Op. The group features dancers from Trey McIntyre Project, Ballet Idaho, Off Center Dance Project, Idaho Dance Theatre and more. The project was fully funded via Kickstarter and the inaugural performance in August was more than sold-out, leaving attendees with just one question: What took so long?
