My name is Olivia, I am twenty years old, and I have been dancing for fifteen years.
My artistic goal is to dance professionally as a ballet dancer. Dance has always been integral to my emotional growth and stability. Not only did it instill values of honesty, commitment, and respect, it provided an outlet for emotional expression. As a result, dance transcends physicality to spirituality, involving all of my being. No matter the style, dance assigns meaning to my existence! I have found something that has the power to motivate my life, and that is truly special.
This year, I auditioned and have been offered a position to study with San Francisco Conservatory of Dance in the summer.
It will be four weeks of strenuous classes, in the aim that I will be physically prepared to audition for professional work in the fall.
This intensive program is a perfect and most critical step to affirm and strengthen my previous training.
As far as expenses go, I'm paying tuition in monthly installments.
As a full time student, I can only work part-time. I'm currently exploring other ways of revenue-building.
Housing costs $1500. Here lies my challenge.
I ask your help to fill the gap.
The housing payment is due in June, which doesn't give me much time in summer to accrue funds.
If you could, would you donate?
I would be incredibly grateful to have this chance to create a career for myself in dance! I know I am capable-- I just need the ammunition.
