The RWB School is giving you the opportunity to ask questions to parents who have raised a professional ballerina and parents who are currently doing so!

Panelists are Gail & Doug Little, parents of Evelyn Little, current student in the RWB School Professional Division and Susan & Serge Deleau, parents of RWB corps de ballet dancer Jaimi Deleau, alumni of the Professional Division.

This free event will provide insight on how to support aspiring dancers as a parent, how to balance dance education with academics, and more.

The panel will be posted on the RWB School's Facebook page following the event.
