   State Street Balletís launches its 2012-2013 season with the World Premiere of AN AMERICAN TANGO, an original full-length ballet conceived and Written by Guy Veloz, directed and choreographed by William Soleau, and produced by Michael Roush and Rodney Gustafson. The full-length ballet is based on the life and true love story of Frank and Yolanda Veloz, considered the greatest ballroom dance duo of the 1930s and 40s.
   Their passionate romance and notorious friends catapulted them from the steamy clubs of Havana and Miami, to Broadway, and finally, Beverly Hills, and the world of Hollywood film.
   Mr. Soleau has created a touching tribute to Frank and Yolandaís love affair with their art, their many colorful friends, including Dutch Schultz, Walter Winchell, and Florenz Ziegfeld, and most importantly, each other.
   He has created over 80 original dance works in the course of his career, including several for State Street Ballet. Mr. Soleauís STARRY NIGHT based on the life of Vincent van Gogh, was seen in Santa Barbara last year, and made use of a spoken character role to help the audience understand the historical narrative. Mr. Soleauís new work, AN AMERICAN TANGO, will feature the versatile theater and film actor JOSEPH FUQUA as a character witness, literally, to Frank and Yolanda Velozí passionate marriage and exciting circle of friends, which included legendary Broadway producers, Hollywood filmmakers, and notorious Las Vegas mob dons.
