Latvian Dancer's Future in Iceland

I am currently studying in Icelandic Academy of the Arts, Contemporary Dance program for a BA, due to graduate in 2016. I started dancing when I was age 19 and I have studied in Latvian Academy of Culture, Contemporary Dance Choreography but now I am based in Iceland. I work as a dancer and choreographer, and also write music and collaborate with different artists.

I work as a bartender in Iceland, Reykjavik night shifts after school. But with that salary I can barely earn money for rent and food. 

All the doors are opening for me but only money is in my way.
I have been in Iceland only for one year but this country and Icelandic Acadamy of the Arts has changed me and my dance technique so much, that I have truly relised - I can't live or do anything else but dance. Dive into it deeper and deeper and never stop.

This is your moment to help a pretty desperate but passionate guy from Latvia to make his life a living dream.

Thanks a lot,
with love,
Klavs Liepins
