Help Our Urban Ballerina Atlanta Ballet

Thank you for visiting this page. If you are here you have graciously chosen to support  Karielle Williams in her dance pursuits.

As of February 26, 2013 Karielle was accepted into the Atlanta Ballet Centre's 4 week Summer Program for Intermediate Ballet dancers - after a competitive audition that spread throughout the country. This is an amazing opportunity for her. 

About the program:

Classes for the 2013 Atlanta Ballet Centre Summer Intensives may include:

  • Ballet
  • Technique
  • Pointe
  • Pas de Deux
  • Variations
  • Modern
  • Nutrition
  • Pilates
  • Improvisation
  • Jazz
  • Physical Therapy
  • Contemporary
  • Musical Theatre
  • Performances

Some classes may vary by site, but the daily structure and basic curriculum of all Summer Intensive programs is identical. Students take four classes a day; generally three dance classes and either pas de deux, pilates, or lectures. In addition, dancers have rehearsals on most days. Dancers in each Summer Intensive have the opportunity to perform in a final studio performance showcasing what they have learned during the program.

As most of you know Karielle has been training extensively with DancExcel Champion Center right here in Gary, Indiana for the past three years to master modern, jazz, contemporary and ballet dance variations. Most recently she has also began pointe mastery at the Ruth Page Center for the Arts in Chicago, Illionois. She is working very hard to pursue her dreams.

Coming for a very humble background but with a large extended family and support group she can go far but your help is desperately needed to make this dream a reality.

This "urban ballerina" (as her mom calls her) has big dreams but cannot do it alone. This website was created to help fund the dream of going to Atlanta to study this summer. The goal amount set gets her 1/2 way there. 

The deadline for reaching this half tuition payment is March 15, 2013!!! So please donate as much as you can as soon as you can....

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
