Meet Amelia – today’s Cape Horn for Kids honoree. She was born with Williams Syndrome, a rare genetic syndrome that causes physical disabilities and developmental delays. This doesn’t stop her from doing what she loves most, dancing. It was the One2One Mentoring Program at Children’s Village that helped her begin pursuing her love of dance with a class at The Yakima School of Ballet.
Here’s an introduction to her story:
Watching six-year-old Amelia Kloepfer proudly twirl and prance on stage during her first ballet recital was a momentous experience for the entire family. Dressed in a sweet pink tutu and hair pulled back into a tight bun, Amelia’s smile radiated throughout the entire auditorium.
