The Greater Wayne County Links Chapter, Inc. and The Michigan Opera Theatre are committed to increasing diversity in the world of elite arts like ballet, they have partnered to provide up to 400 children with the opportunity to attend performances at the Detroit Opera House. Today, the GWCC Links recognized their collaboration with both the Michigan Opera House and Detroit Ballet by hosting the two Detroit area dancers who received scholarships to purse the goal of a professional dance career, as well as the young ladies of Avalon Village in Highland Park. Their day included fun, festivities, and an opportunity to view today’s Alvin Ailey Performance.
