WSB students and parents were recently included in a KPCC Public Radio story on Ballet Summer Intensives and how the ballet industry is changing. The story aired live on Tuesday, March 11th, but fortunately there is a link for everyone to both read the article, see a slideshow and listen to the story by KPCC Arts Education Reporter Mary Plummer. If you have trouble with the link, go to ww.kpcc.org, click on news: education: pass/fail blog. Then scroll down to the story “For aspiring ballerinas, summer intensives can provide a leg up.” Westside Ballet thanks Reporter Mary Plummer and Visual Reporter Maya Sugarman.
Special thanks to alumna Melissa Barak and her company, Barak Ballet, for their invitation to the WSB family to attend a recent performance at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica. It was spectacular!
Alumna Lyrica Blankfein received the prestigious Mae L. Wien Award, presented to her by Peter Martins on June 3rd at the School of American Ballet workshop gala performance.
Lyrica is the third Westside Ballet alumna to receive the prestigious Mae L. Wien award. Melissa Barak of New York City Ballet and current Director of Barak Ballet was a prior recipient. Andrew Veyette, current Principal of New York City Ballet and guest artist with American Ballet Theater, also received the award.
WSB’s very accomplished alumna Elisabeth Moss, known for her character “Peggy” on the popular and long running AMC series “Madmen”, was featured in an exclusive ABC news interview with Diane Sawyer. Elisabeth spoke about her background at Westside Ballet.
