Ballet at the Park Dance Studio students performed at The Falls Shopping Center during the Breast Cancer Awareness event, “Paint the Mall Pink,” on Saturday, Oct. 19.
Ballet at the Park is just one of the many programs that the Village of Palmetto Bay offers.
The community event embraced women’s breast cancer and health awareness with the support of participating retailers who donated prizes for raffles.
The dancers performed a series of dance selections choreographed and directed by Vilma Borbolla, director of the dance studio. The performance culminated with a dance number featuring a life size pink ribbon displayed by the dancers representing the iconic breast cancer symbol.
Miss Vilma, as she is known, is close at heart with this cause after the loss of her beloved mother, Vilma, 16 years ago.
She said she is very proud of her students’ performances and enthusiasm to perform at the event. The dance troupe is looking forward to participating in future community events.
