You may remember the local ballet company that we featured in an audio photo video a couple of years ago. It seems the Los Angeles Ballet has been plagued ever since by a high turnover among its dancers. Laura Bleiberg at the LA Weekly digs into why.

From the vault: Judy Graeme's LA Observed video of behind-the-scenes photos at the ballet's studio. More images from the video after the jump.
