Please support two young ballet students from Corona Dance Academy who have earned an amazing opportunity to compete a Contemporary Duo piece titled Flight in the finals at the world's largest ballet scholarship competition, Youth America Grand Prix (www.yagp.org) in New York City on April 3-12, 2014. The young duo must quickly raise money to pay for competition entry fees, transportation and housing costs and is looking to you, friends, family and community partners for support. The choreographer of this beautiful piece "Flight" is Anthony Jackson aka Mr. AJ, and if there is enough money raised, the girls would like to bring him along to New York, as most dancers competing in New York Finals will have a studio representative and/or teacher assisting. Please share with your friends and alike who might be interested in supporting these two girls pursuing their dream. Any amount will help. If they by any chance raise more than needed, they will use it towards their 3-week intensive with the American Ballet Theatre this summer, which they were both accepted to (over 3,000 audition for ABT intensives but only 160 are accepted to this paricular location in Irvine, CA)
The young duo consisting of Anna Meyer (11) and Riley Parish(11) are thanking their supporters from the bottom of their hearts. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Finally, a big thank you to Corona Dance Academy's Artistic Directors Rosemary McCarter & Elizabeth Molak-Huebner who so kindly have donated their time, funds and invaluable guidance on the path of these two girls striving to get to dance in New York.
