DANCE L.A. Ballet Loses Mervyn's Grant: The Mervyn's-Target department store chain has canceled its three-year $975,000 grant to Los Angeles Ballet because of the company's inability to produce George Balanchine's "Nutcracker" in 1995, according to Mervyns spokeswoman Sandra Salyer. The grant provided L.A. Ballet with $162,500 in April, but funding and loans from other sources fell through, and all of the company's scheduled 1995 performances have been canceled.
