THE STORY:

As a gesture of kindness and friendship in a "hands across the sea," the Willis Ballet has granted Leezan Salam a 2 Year Scholarship to study at Peggy Willis-Aarnio's Willis Conservatory of Classical Ballet in Panama City Beach, Florida and to attend Peggy Willis-Aarnio's 17th International Teacher's Congress in Rockwall, Texas this July (to be held at the Harmonic Motion School of Classical Ballet, Sharon Steele, Artistic Director.) Leezan Salam has accepted the Scholarship (the value study at the Willis Conservatory of Classical Ballet in Florida is $64,800 for two years which includes a 2 bedroom furnished apartment with all utilities paid) and now the Willis Ballet is seeking individuals who will donate the funds for her and her Father's airfare and hotel accommodations while she is in the USA to attend the Ballet Teacher's Congress and Student Workshop in Rockwall, Tx which will pay for the tuition of this 17th Annual International Teacher's Congress and Workshop. After this study in Rockwall, Tx with Prof. Emeritus Peggy Willis-Aarnio, Leezan will then travel to Panama City Beach, FL to study personally with Peggy Willis-Aarnio for 2 years. Help us to Help Leezan realize her dream. The contact is Paul Aarnio at the willisballet@yahoo.com or call Paul Aarnio, President of the Willis Ballet at (850) 319-5122 or (850) 236-1555 and leave a message. We look forward to meeting and seeing Leezan in July and sharing the love of true classical ballet!
