The Alan Woodard
Our beloved school director Alan Woodard passed away on June 30, 2019. As a teacher, choreographer and director Mr. Woodard for over twenty years, he embodied our school’s passion for ballet and commitment to excellence. Mr. Woodard was dedicated to making ballet accessible to everyone and will be remembered for his kindness, his gentle humor and his vast knowledge of all aspects of dance.
In his honor we have established The Alan Woodard Scholarship Fund. Proceeds from this fund will continue his legacy of educating children and bringing the performing arts to underserved communities.
