Congratulations Claire Smith, 13 yrs old BAE student, our Angel Shine scholarship for summer intensive
We first discovered Claire Smith (13 years old) while observing her taking class at Ballet Academy East. She has a powerful spirit and can effortlessly perform 6 pirouettes at her young age! Claire is not only a gifted technical dancer but she possesses a true artistic joy for dance. Her smile lit up the stage as she performed La Danza Curativa (choreographed by Christopher Charles McDaniel, dancer with Dance Theatre of Harlem) at the BAE gala and it captured our hearts! Congratulations Claire, we believe in you and look forward to seeing you blossom on and off stage.
