Simone has been accepted to the most prestigious and exclusive summer ballet training program available -- the world renowned Bolshoi Ballet Academy! Simone and I are calling on friends, family and supporters of the arts, to contribute to her intensive training in Westover, Connecticut this summer.

Living in a small town in Idaho, she receives great training with our local studio, Festival Dance Academy. Simone continues to impress us with her skill and hard work in classical ballet. Her innate ability and excellent local training with ballet mistress Mia Seshiki has allowed her to train with distinguished studios such as The Rock School in Philadelphia, and The Kirov Academy in Washington, DC during the past two summers. Now, she has reached a level where the very exacting classical Russian teachers of the Bolshoi Ballet have given her an opportunity to train with them.

Simone's goal is to become a professional ballerina. She has the innate ability, work ethic and serious drive to do that. Because ballerinas start their careers early, it is import for her to train at this level at her young age.

We are thrilled by the recognition of her talent and perseverance, and want to provide this opportunity for her, but we can't do it alone. We are asking for financial assistance from family, friends and supporters of the arts to help send Simone to the Bolshoi training this summer!

Thank you for supporting Simone, her talent and dreams!

As her mother, I wish I could pay for all of her opportunities myself. As a school district nurse in Idaho, I do a lot of good for many families, but I don't have a large salary.
Your gift will help make Simone's dreams of becoming a professional ballerina a reality.
