A year ago, Chalina wasn't sure if injuries would keep her from dancing again, but after good care and tremendous hard work, she has not only regained her previous skills, but surpassed them to earn a spot to study with American Ballet Theatre (our National ballet) in a summer intensive program! We will be doing everything we can to get her tuition, room and board, and travel expenses covered and we could really use your help. Those of you who know Chalina know that dance is central to her life and her joy. After twelve years of study, the past several spent in a pre-professional program, she is ready and excited to take her work as a dancer to a new level. If you have a few extra dollars and an investment in encouraging young women in the arts, we will be immensely grateful for your support. And if you don't have funds to spare, your good thoughts and well-wishes are equally appreciated! Thank you.
