Caprice Walker, Westside Ballet’s Co-Associate Artistic Director, received Westside’s Bravo! Award at the Raise the Barre Soiree on September 22. ‘Miss Caprice,’ as she is affectionately known to generations of Westside Ballet students, was honored for her longevity and commitment, dedication and vast contributions to the School and the Company for over 4 decades.
The Soiree, an elegant affair held at the Santa Monica Bay Women’s Club, was an enormously successful event to benefit Westside Ballet’s Project RELEVÉ which provides support for performances, a scholarship fund, and community outreach programs. Patrons from all over the City of Santa Monica came to celebrate and support Westside Ballet of Santa Monica as the jewel in the crown of the arts community both in Santa Monica and greater Los Angeles.
Project RELEVÉ gives you an opportunity to support the programs of Westside Ballet of Santa Monica, a pre-professional training company serving the Los Angeles ballet community for over 40 years.With support from the dance community and beyond, Westside Ballet is able to produce professional performances, expand its scholarship program, and build partnerships with numerous community organizations to advance the study and appreciation of ballet in Los Angeles.
