“I’m just so grateful. It would not have been possible without your help,” Falinda Farley, Silas’s mother, told CSF. “You put all these children through the best private schools in town. They’ve been able to get a tremendous education.”
With the support of his family and teachers, Silas flourished in the classroom and dance studio, eventually earning a full scholarship to the School of American Ballet and completing high school at the Professional Children’s School. He officially joined the Ballet one year after high school. In 2021, he became the dean of the Colburn School’s Trudl Zipper Dance Institute, and is currently an artist in residence at Southern Methodist University.
