The Dallas Ballet is putting its act together and taking it on the road--mostly because the company needs to raise $1.3 million to begin its home season. "We didn't have enough funds pledged to start paying the dancers and launch the season," said executive director Jack Page on Wednesday. "And rather than start out and run out of gas before we got to the end of the line, we elected not even to start." Among the stops: a September tour of Denmark and a probable tour of Spain thereafter. The 28-dancer company was scheduled to begin a three-month season in Dallas on Oct. 13 with a production of "Swan Lake," but money shortages postponed the season. The company has been plagued by money problems since early 1987, when dancers with tin cans stood on street corners, trying to raise money.
