From the Register-Mail:
One local girlâ€™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 Kingâ€™s LINES Balletâ€™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 companyâ€™s summer intensive program, at which time they asked her to enroll in the training program.
â€œThey are my dream company,â€ she said of LINES.
