Joffrey Ballet School

I'm 14 years old and was recently accepted into the Joffrey Ballet School. Joffrey is world renowned and difficult to get into. Most dancers that are accepted have been training for many years and are accepted into one or two of Joffrey's programs. I have been training seriously for less than a year and was accepted into many of their amazing programs including the summer intensive ballet programs and the full time trainee program for the 2014/15 school year.

When I got my audition results I was ecstatic and could not believe that they where my results. I want to become a professional ballet dancer and feel this opportunity is my big break. Most dancers start when they are very young, I am starting late and have to take advanatge of every opportunity I can. 

Dance is  extremly expensive. I want to attend the NY summer intensive program and will have to cover all my expenses including transportaion ($1,000), tuition (4,000), housing, meals, uniform and shoes (5,000). My parents, brother and his girlfriend are doing everything they can to help. I have applied for fiancial aid and scholarships. 

I need asssistance. If you can donate any amount no matter how big or small it would greatly be appreciated.  

Thank you and I hope you can help make my dream come true. Hope you enjoy my video. 

Thank you again! 
Cody
