It has been several years since my sister Peggy Willis-Aarnio passed away. Peggy was an immense force for the education and training of classical ballet teachers Internationally.
Peggy's vision and dream was for every ballet student to be able to have access to studying and learning classical ballet no matter of their circumstance.
Performing Arts Exchange program desires to make an impact on those communities which would not be able to realize correct classical ballet training without our program. Your help will enable us to reach the multitude of needed schools and classes through our outreach program.
For over 40 years, Peggy Willis dedicated her life to acquire the skills and materials necessary to create the program, a compilation of elite Vaganova Classical Dance training materials. This program captures the details of Vaganova Classical Dance, known to be the premiere method for achieving exquisite form, grace and beauty while contributing to the prevention of dance related injury due to it's superior training method.
