When it comes to Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, artistic director Tom Mossbrucker says audiences should “expect the unexpected.”

“I think a lot of people have preconceived notions when they think of seeing a dance performance, especially one with the name ballet in the title,” Mossbrucker said during a Monday phone interview. “Our dancers are classically trained and we’re a ballet company, but our repertoire is very contemporary and it’s also very diverse.”

The troupe, performing tonight at the Grand Sierra Resort, was founded in Aspen, Colo., in 1996 and took on a second home in Santa Fe, N.M., in 2000. Thus the name.
