SWVA Ballet director to take part in Cupcakes for a Cause

Posted: Updated:

Southwest Virginia Ballet artistic director Pedro Szalay will be working to keep the arts in Roanoke schools this weekend. He's taking a sweet break from the ballet Saturday to take part in Cupcakes for a Cause.

Szalay is not only known for his work with the ballet company but for bringing Dance Espanol to Roanoke City Schools. His program gets kids moving and learning Spanish. It's all part of the arts programs Szalay wants to keep in the school system.

He will serve cupcakes at Bubblecake Bake Shop's Crystal Spring location Saturday afternoon. All proceeds will be donated to the arts programs. "It's so important to reinforce the arts like I grew up with the arts in my country," Szalay said. "It's so nice to implement the arts to the kids from a younger age."

Szalay will be at Bubblecake Saturday from 2 to 3:30 p.m..
