Shondra's Dance in the Macys Parade

Shondra's dance studio was invited to participate in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!  Shondra did an audition video and passed, and she can participate!  For the trip, she will spend a week in NYC before the parade learning the choreography and seeing the sites with the dance group.   This is so exciting! 

Unfortunately, the program, training, and costumes have a pretty big price tag.  She was talented enough to be invited to participate.  Please help make sure we can pay for the program so she can go.

The deadline for payment is Sept. 15th, so there is a bit of a time crunch.

As many of you know, I'm a single mom on disability.  Any help you can give to help get her there would be appreciated.

Whether you can donate or not, please make sure to watch for her on Thanksgiving morning.  When I know where in the parade she will be,  I will let everyone know.

Here is a video of her ballet group last Christmas.
