Martha’s scholarship is awarded in honor of Mrs. Kira Faiman. Angel Shine is thrilled to recognize Martha’s beautiful elegance and exceptional artistry.
“I am deeply honored to have been chosen as a scholar by the Angel Shine Foundation, after hearing about Ms. Allyson Tang’s deep involvement in the ballet world, both on the Board of the New York City Ballet, one of my dream companies, and in helping young dancers like me. I am looking forward to start training at the Princess Grace Academy in Monaco and can’t wait to see where my journey in the incredible world of ballet takes me.”-Martha
