The Lindsey Merritt Scholarship Fund


Lindsey Milan Chapman Merritt danced at The Ballet School from 2006-2009.  She was a gifted and vivacious young dancer with a glowing smile and inspirational enthusiasm.  In addition to dance, she was passionate about the environment, animals, her friends, and her family.  Lindsey died of Osteosarcoma on October 7th, 2010.  It was her wish that a scholarship fund be established to help other young dancers who share her unwavering love for ballet to pursue their dreams and achieve their goals.


If you would like to contribute to the fund, donations are accepted in any amount and should be made payable to The Ballet School with the notation “Scholarship Fund” in the memo line.  Though your contribution is not tax deductible, every dollar raised goes towards tuition for students in need.
