Dear Family, friends and supporters,

Most recently Amber has been invited to study at some of the top ballet schools in the world for this coming summer. A couple of these schools include the reputable San Francisco Ballet School and the prestigious Paris Opera Ballet School. While Amber has been fortunate enough to be awarded with amazing and much needed scholarships, it’s the living and travel expenses that can be overwhelming. We are reaching out to family, friends and loyal supporters to help Amber not just achieve her goals for the summer but to achieve her dreams for the future. We need your help. Please share with your family and friends. We appreciate any support you can offer.
