Send Ruby and Jonas to Blackpool

Me,

Ruby Castro (13), and my partner, Jonas Terleckas (15), have been dancing together for about 5 years now. We have attended many ballroom competition across the globe and love to dance very much. We've made appearences on multiple televison shows and have been on America's Got Talent season 7/8. Jonas is originally from Lithuania where he grew up until 2012. He then moved to Miami, FL to dance with me under the instuction of Dance Town. We are trained and coached by Loreta Kriksciukaityte, Ivan Mulyavka, Aleksandr Skarlato, and Karin rooba. We plan on going to the Blackpool Dance festival this year but, money is tight right now and we could use any help we can get to travel there and compete. Since Jonas has moved we have helped  with expenses the most we possibly can. Ballroom dancing is one of the most expensive dance styles, from costumes, traveling, and training to many other things involved. Blackpool Dance festival is one of the most prestigous dance comepetitons in the world. It takes place in Blackpool, England which is very far from Miami,FL and it is a very expensive trip. We went to blackpool in 2014 and placed 4th in the Juvenile Latin out of hundreds of kids. We have not been able to return because of money and this year is our last year to attended due to our age. We would be so greatful if you could support us on our journey to sucsses. Thank you for taking the time to hear our story and we hope you can help us achive our goals.
