Connecticut Ballet will hold its annual benefit performance for Khalda Logan Dance Scholarships, awarded to talented middle and high school youth from greater Danbury, on Sunday, March 19 at 4:30pm at Broadview Middle School, 72 Hospital Avenue, Danbury. All members of the community are encouraged to attend this collaborative performance featuring dance styles from ballet to hip hop to ethnic dance. Tickets are $15.00 for adults and $5.00 for children 12 and under. The Khalda Logan Dance Scholarships are named in memory of Khalda Logan, an original member of the ballet’s Danbury Dance Initiative Task Force and beloved WestConn faculty member, who succumbed to cancer eight years ago. Monies raised will be distributed to youth chosen by audition to enable them to pursue foundational or accelerated arts training in the discipline of their choice. Further initiatives are planned to expand the scope of dance exposure and dance training available to youth served by the Danbury school district.
