My daughter has been dancing with Legacy Ballet since she was two years old. We love this studio for the caring staff that supports for the entire student and for the professional productions these students get to be a part of twice a year. The confidence she has built and the friendships made are priceless! Please support this nonprofit if you love the arts and want to provide kids the opportunity to grow their love for dance. Thank you.
My oldest has danced in the Nutcracker for 8 years now and my son 3 years. This organization is top notch giving opportunities for young dancers to dance in a professional production, along with guest artists dancing in roles that are usually reserved for adults in professional ballet companies. I highly recommend partnering with Legacy Ballet Foundation, especially if you have a love for the arts and want to provide children opportunities as described.
