Dear Family and Friends,

I am elated to announce this news, as it allows me to continue my journey with dance while indulging in Italy’s culture. I am a Dance major and rising Senior at Middlebury College of Middlebury, Vermont. While I have taken classes in nearly every department along my journey, DANCE is my home.  I have explored several operations in dance: performance, choreography, dance for camera, and arts administration. I think it’s safe to say, I have fully embraced my stance as a movement artist.

This summer I have been granted an amazing opportunity to study in SORRENTO, ITALY. My creative improvisational footage rendered me as a competitive candidate, for I was selected as one of roughly 25 participants.  This dance intensive is sponsored by Staib Dance, a professional contemporary dance company based in Atlanta GA. There, I will learn from a number of professional choreographers and perform alongside company members in Sant'Agata. If you know me, you know I strongly value all opportunities to challenge myself. Clearly, this experience will contribute to my continual growth as a student, dancer, multi-interest artist, and individual.

This trip is very special to me because it will empower me with the exposure and network I need to enter the Arts and Entertainment field upon graduation.

So…I am seeking donations to support me in this amazing experience. The total cost of this trip is $4,000:

-Intensive study; 3 classes and rehearsal daily 
-Housing
-Full breakfast and dinner
-2 cultural excursions
-Cost of Outdoor performance production
-Roundtrip Airfare

Payments start as early as May 2nd , and the full balance must be paid by June 2nd.

All Donations will be a Great Blessing! I thank my village in advance for your continual support.
 

Ubuntu,
