Heading Back to Ponderosa Movement

Dear Beloved Community,
For the last time as a student, I will be heading back to Ponderosa Movement and Discovery.
Original Room, Board, and Tuition Balance: $2700.00
Raised: $1,394.00
Remaining: $1,306.00

Want to raise these additional funds.  **** DEADLINE EXTENDED****

Last year was amazing! I came back with so much information. Opportunities just sprung up!
-Performed a piece about my grandmother experiences at 15 (video included)
-Curator a piece about Septa (public transportation)
-Meet with the one of the directors of Walter Reed Arts a few months (http://arts.gov/partnerships/walter-reed)
-Getting information revised to submit to an official at Veteran Affairs
-Co-curating a piece call the 5 Black Women Locs Project happening June 27th and June 28th in Philadelphia

This time around, I will be doing the Performance and Choreography Modules (http://www.ponderosa-dance.de/en/porch/porch-performance-module.html, http://www.ponderosa-dance.de/en/porch/porch-choreographic-module.html) from July 14-August 31st.
Performance module will entail creating and presenting new work
everyday as a way to work with the central nervous system. For the choreography module, I will show work in progress and then present it in Berlin, Germany.

I need your help in making this a reality...consider your donation as paying it forward. No amount is too small or large. Will use the experience for creating performances, coaching, teaching, and working at Walter Reed Arts- Veterans Affairs.

I'm contributing to this endeavor as well through day jobs, artistic jobs, contract jobs, contacting grant agencies, etc. Also I am doing work exchange this time which has cut down the cost. You can contribute through this secure page, or you can send directly to the organization (http://www.ponderosa-dance.de/en/contact.html(please let them know that it is for my room and board), or you can send it to my address.
Address: 916 S 48th Street
Philadelphia, PA 19143

If you have any questions, please contact me at [phone redacted].

Contributors will receive postcards from Germany. Please make sure I have your address. :)

All the best,
