1500 Angels to Save Westside School of Ballet

1500 Angels: Save Our Studio!

There has never been a more important time to contribute to our legacy.

Westside School of Ballet is Los Angeles’ most successful ballet academy. Founded by Yvonne Mounsey and Rosemary Valaire in 1967, the school has been a touchstone for countless children and adult dancers for over 54 years.

During this unprecedented time, we need each and every one of you to help save this incredible institution.

Our teachers, pianists and staff are committed to keeping this studio afloat in the midst of the COVID-19 health crisis by offering over 50 online classes per week. Every effort is being made to keep our doors open, as we are the custodians of this amazing legacy — and YOU can be too!

Our 1500 Angels campaign is an inspirational effort to Save Our Studio. Westside Ballet is looking for 1500 angels to contribute $100 each, but we would be grateful for any amount you can contribute.

Please Become an Angel NOW and save this legacy school that has been so terribly impacted by the stay-at-home orders!
