Ashley is a 16 year old competitive dancer from North Vancouver and has been chosen by Team Canada to represent Canada in the Showdance category at the official World Dance Championships in Riesa, Germany this November.
Ashley maintained a 90% grade average in her Grade 10 year, while dancing 35+ hours per week. She is a dance student in the Peak Performance program at ProArte Dance Center. Ashley has won the opportunity to go to Provincials for the last 3 years and among that, winning for the entire province for Ballet while being the youngest in her age category.
Dance is not recognized in Canada as a sporting event, even though many of our dancers train up to 7 days per week. They are as flexible as any gymnast, as graceful as figure skaters and as dedicated as any Olympic athlete. Dancers of this caliber have trained for hours and hours and will represent our country with pride at the world level. Each dancer is required to raise $3650 + to cover all travel (air & ground), rehearsal space, choreography fees, costumes, Team Canada jackets, hotels, and international entry fees.
Your contribution/sponsorship for this amazing opportunity is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for all your love and support.
