Celebrating Over 50 Years of Excellence

1500 ANGELS: Save Our Studio!

A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove. But the world may be different, because I was important in the life of a child.

—Forest Witcraft

There has never been a more important time to contribute to our legacy.

Westside School of Ballet is Los Angeles’ most successful ballet academy. Founded by Yvonne Mounsey and Rosemary Valaire in 1967, the school has been a touchstone for countless children and adult dancers for over 54 years.

During this unprecedented time, we need each and every one of you to help save this incredible institution.

Our teachers, pianists and staff are committed to keeping this studio afloat in the midst of the COVID-19 health crisis by offering over 50 online classes per week. Every effort is being made to keep our doors open, as we are the custodians of this amazing legacy — and YOU can be too!

Our 1500 Angels campaign is an inspirational effort to Save Our Studio. We are asking for your contribution of just $100 a month over the next few months, until we are operating at full capacity again.

Become an Angel NOW and contribute what you can to save this legacy school that has been so terribly impacted by the stay-at-home orders!
