Dancer pirouettes to SF for dream career

From the Register-Mail:

One local girl’s dream of becoming a professional ballerina is one step closer to coming true.

Jaidah Terry of Galesburg, 17, leaves Monday for San Francisco and a spot in Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet’s two-year training academy. She studied dance in Monmouth and at Knox College before beginning three years ago with the Peoria Ballet Academy.

Jaidah spent her summer in the company’s summer intensive program, at which time they asked her to enroll in the training program.

“They are my dream company,” she said of LINES.
