Ballet school offers alternative to rough Colombia streets

World Today

A foundation called Festival Art in Bogota, Colombia is offering 35 children from underprivileged neighborhoods an opportunity to become professional ballet dancers.

The foundation pays all the expenses, including uniform, snacks and even nighttime transport home after class is over. Festival Art asks the children and their families for just one thing: commitment.
