University of Evansville student Hasaan Ladha will be on his first flight across the Atlantic in a few days. He’ll begin his sophomore year at Harlaxton College, UE's sister school in England.

Amy Scharf founded Main Street Dance at the beginning of the summer with no funding, only the goal of putting on an original ballet. 

Scharf said she wanted  "An American Cinderella,"  to bring a new production with fresh choreography to Evansville. 

"This is something that people have never seen before," she said. "There's something very magical about taking this idea and watching it and devising it and creating it until it becomes this three-dimensional thing."
