About Girls on Pointe
After being paired up for 2014’s Dancing with Vero’s Stars, Tim Girard, of Girard Equipment, Inc., and Amy Trammell, of Vero Classical Ballet, discussed the many benefits of dance training that Tim was experiencing firsthand. Tim was able to watch classes that Amy and her husband, Barry, taught at Vero Classical Ballet and see the impact on the self-esteem and self-confidence of VCB’s students. After DWVS, Tim and Amy kept in touch and regularly discussed Vero Classical Ballet and its students. It was then that the idea for Girls on Pointe was born. The program will allow local residents and business owners to sponsor partial scholarships for deserving dancers at the school.
