August 2013: Northwest Indiana Ballerina to compete at Miss Indiana USA Pageant
For 34 years Indiana Ballet Theatre has been helping raise the youth of Northwest Indiana. Through dance many life skills are taught and refined confidence, discipline and the value of hard work. This tradition continues on this fall. November 2nd and 3rd, 2013 at the Renaissance Indianapolis North Hotel Indiana Ballet Theatre Alumni, Sarah Holland, will be competing in the Miss Indiana USA Pageant. Sarah has danced with Indiana Ballet Theatre since she was 3 years old and danced lead rolls of Clara, Snow Queen and Sugar Plum Fairy from The Nutcracker, Odette from Swan Lake, and the Lilac Fairy in Sleeping Beauty. Sarah is a 2013 graduate of Crown Point High School and is attending Lindenwood University majoring in Business and Dance. Indiana Ballet Theatre’s Board Members Edda Taylor, Carol Highsmith, Anna Rominger, Katie Holderby, Fund Development Consultant Jill Barrett and Founding Director Gloria Tuohy support Sarah in this endeavor and wish her much success as she represents Indiana.
