Since its inception in 1988, the Westchester Ballet Company’s scholarship program has awarded over $150,000 to young dancers. “We are delighted that our scholarship program has allowed so many young people to learn the fundamentals of ballet and other dance styles, as well as to experience the thrill of performance,” says Kristina Lindbergh, of the Westchester Ballet Company. “While not all ballet students will pursue careers in dance, the coordination, discipline, alignment and poise they gain from this exceptional training will benefit them no matter what they do later on.”
“The primary goal of the Westchester Ballet Company is to bring ballet of the highest quality to the community,” says Artistic Director, Beth Fritz-Logrea. “For the past twenty-four years, our scholarship program has helped us achieve this by enabling many talented and motivated young dancers to participate in our productions.”
