Help Nicole's dreams come true!

February 12, 2014
Hi my name is Nicole as many of you know my dream is to be a professional ballerina. I spend most of my free time dancing if not in class then wherever I am. I have been caught doing dance moves in many places if you don't believe me ask my teachers and family they always get a good laugh and most times I don't even realize I'm doing it. Dance is a way for me to express myself and it has taught me to be a pretty good person. Because I train 6 days a week for over 20 hours I have to work pretty hard to keep up my grades and chores. I am on the honor roll at school and I have received many awards for attendance, grades and behaviors.
In order to be in a ballet company as an adult or to get a scholarships for college there are things I need to do. One thing is to attend summer intensives that are offered all over the United States. As some of you might remember I went to Miami Ballet Company 2 years ago and last year I attended several intensives closer to my home like Glenwood Springs and such.
I have auditioned for several ballet intensives: Boston Ballet
, Orlando Ballet
, Kansas City Ballet
and Alonzo Lines
. I am so excited as I have been accepted by them all except Alonzo Lines which I am waiting for my answer. I never dreamed I would get accepted by all of these amazing companies! I will have to make a decision in the next week as to which one I will go to.
So now I am asking for help. I need to raise the money to pay for this intensive as they are not cheap and deposits have to be made immediately! Any help would help make my dream come true. I am willing to babysit, clean, do yard work anything to make this happen. If you want to sponsor me and want me to do anything just send me a message and I will Even $5 would help :)
Thank you,
Nicole Leatherman
