Micayla Stone   LONG BEACH, CA
Hey Everyone!

My name is Micayla Stone. I am a homeschooled fourteen year old dancer from Southern California.
I have been dancing since I was four years old and it has always been my dream to be a part of The Royal Ballet.
Recently I have been offered a place at their year round school in England!!!
This is an amazing opportunity and a big honor; something that can not easily be passed up. It is also a huge expense (they do not offer financial aid to students outside the U.K.).
Please consider helping me to make my dream come true! Any donation is greatly appreciated.

With Gratitude,
-Micayla

Here are some interesting facts about The Royal Ballet School:

"¢ The Royal Ballet School is recognized as one of the top three centers of dance training in the world.

"¢ Admission to The royal Ballet School is based purely on artistic talent and potential.

"¢ There are currently 129 students aged 11 - 16 at the Lower School (White Lodge), and only 90 students aged 16 - 19 at the Upper School in Covet Garden.

"¢ Currently 90% of students rely on financial support to attend the school.

"¢ Each year between 700 - 750 young dancers audition for a place at The Royal Ballet School. The School admits just 24 students into Year 7 and 25 - 30 into Year 12.

"¢ On average the ratio of boys and girls is 50/50, twenty years ago it was 80% girls.

"¢ For the past seven years 99% of graduating students have secured a contract with a national or international ballet company.
