Melissa Weiner '95, Edward Willella and Carrie Madsen '99

Melissa Weiner '95 and Carrie Madsen '99 have won Edward Villella Fellowships for internships with the Miami City Ballet, of which Villella is founder and artistic director.

Villella was on campus in early May leading a lecture-performance with members of the Miami City Ballet.

The fellowship, established through the generosity of Charles Lothridge '44, supports a student during the summer following the competition.

Weiner, who is pursuing her master's in teaching, will spend nearly three weeks working in various areas of the company's operation. Madsen, a frequent participant in dance programs, was selected for next year's internship.
