Pacific Chamber Ballet gets a lifeline

Pacific Chamber Ballet, a Lynnwood dance studio that’s been around for 27 years, is facing closure due to declining enrollment.

Owner Judith Ross said she must close the non-profit school Oct. 1 because she didn’t have enough students to stay open. She needs at least 20 more students to continue operation.

As a result, Ross was $1300 short on rent this month. But someone has stepped up just in the nick of time.

“An anonymous donor gave money to stay open for October while fundraising options are discussed,” Anna James Percival, an instructor at the school, told us.

Percival and other instructors are lo0king for ways to keep Pacific Chamber Ballet open past October.

“At this time I am encouraging local individuals, students, and former teachers to make contributions in any amount through Facebook Causes in an effort to assist with reopening,” Percival said. She’s also working on grant writing and looking for other funding sources.
