♦ Paige Fulleton, one-time star of the Wenatchee Civic Ballet and, most recently, a featured dancer for the Columbus, Ohio, BalletMet, has signed a soloist’s contract with the Miami City Ballet. Her 49-week contract with the Miami company starts July 18. The current season includes a trip to Edinburgh, Scotland, in August and a performance at the Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C., next April. The company’s four home cities are Miami, Naples, West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, Fulleton said. It has a subscription list of 15,000 patrons. Fulleton is moving from the 24-member BalletMet company to a 42-member company and will be dancing more weeks under the new contract. She said that as a soloist she will be given lead roles to dance. She has been with BalletMet since 1987, shortly after she graduated from Wenatchee High School. Locally, she trained with Joan Shelton-Mason’s School of Ballet from 1974 to 1987. Fulleton also danced with the San Francisco Ballet School under full scholarship in 1985-86.
