This past summer Ripley performed Fairy of Joy from Sleeping Beauty. A role she performed when she attend Burklyn as a student. It was amazing to see how much she has grown since she first performed this role. After nearly 8 years of being away from Burklyn Ballet, Ripley found her way back, this time not as a student, but as an Assistant Counselor. It’s so special to see how our dancers grow, not just in the dance world, but as an individual. Ripley might not have taken the professional dancer route, but her love of dance is still there. At Burklyn we strive to provide a positive environment that focuses on the students love of dance. We help open up the curtains to endless amounts of opportunities from preparing you for a position in a professional ballet company, to becoming a part of a stage crew, preparing you for college, or as an extra or character role in a local production, and we hope a lifelong supporter of the arts.
We love seeing photos from Burklyn past. Post, tag and or email firstname.lastname@example.org your favorite Burklyn memories.
