Raising the barre

Raising the barre

Wilton High School senior Ingrid Wang, left, and area students Talya Oral, Lauren Kranzlin and Finley Walker, will give their final performance as New England Academy of Dance (NEAD) ballet students this weekend when the four seniors will dance lead roles in the classical ballets Les Sylphides and Peter and the Wolf in NEAD’s annual Spring Show Performance. Talented both in the arts as well as in academics, Ingrid’s commitment to ballet began when she realized, ‘I loved dancing. The discipline and hard work visibly paid off, and I could see myself grow. … I think it’s amazing to be a part of something as significant as this.’ The show will be performed at New Canaan High School on Saturday, June 14  at 11 a.m., 4 p.m.  and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, June 15, at 4.
