“The intention of the David Hallberg Scholarship for Boys is to help nurture and facilitate training at the School of Ballet Arizona. It is never an easy feat to have the courage or the means to find your calling in ballet as a young boy, but this scholarship will help facilitate that journey through financial support and guidance. My personal journey to finding ballet was riddled with hardships but once ballet found a place in my life as a kid, I couldn’t let go of its exhilarating pulse. I have made it my career to date and to pass on the inspiration I felt when I was first discovering ballet is a completely invaluable experience.” – David Hallberg
