As you may know I have been offered a full time traineeship at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow, Russia starting in January 2018. The Bolshoi Academy only offered this opportunity to 2 Australians this year and I am so thankful and excited to be one of them.
I have trained and worked so hard to get this opportunity and it is something I have dreamed of since I was a very little.
Bolshoi do not offer scholarships to any international students and the fees and boarding alone is $26,000 (which needs to be paid upfront) plus there is airfares/visas and not to mention the number of pointe shoes us ballerinas go through!
The training at the Bolshoi is 6 days a week and it is Russian Ballet so you can imagine how much I will learn and grow as a dancer being there. This will get me so much closer to my future goals in the ballet world.
My family have worked so hard to get me to where I am and I would love to help them with this by raising some of the funds. If you are able to help by sponsoring me or sharing this page with as many people as possible it would be so appreciated.
This is an opportunity that only happens once in a lifetime.
