What do you believe about ballet? Or why were you drawn to be a part of Ballet Idaho?

When I was little I always wanted to be a ballerina! I did not know a lot about ballet before joining the Ballet Idaho board, but had attended performances and loved the art of classical ballet. I believe that art is fundamental to the well-being of a person and society as a whole, and wanted to get involved with an organization that held that same belief and was working to share art with the Boise community.
