6. CONGRATULATIONS TO OBS ALUMNA CHLOE MISSELDINE!

7. This past week, our Community Enrichment department helped 12 Orange County Public School teachers collect dance wear for their respective dance departments. One of them, Jasmine Perez from Legacy Middle School said “Legacy dancers can’t wait to hit the stage with the gorgeous donated costumes. As we know costumes for classes or even an individual student can be so pricey, that’s not even including shoes and accessories. We are so appreciative to have been given the opportunity to have collected bags and bags full of incredible merchandise! Thank you Orlando Ballet!”
