Gabriel's Summer Intensive Fund

Hello everyone! My name is Gabriel Canepa and I have just completed my freshman year as a dance major at the High School for Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) in Houston.  This Spring, while competing at Youth America Grand Prix, a world-renowned ballet competition, I was selected by a teacher from the Harid Conservatory in Boca Raton, FL to attend their prestigous and very selective Summer Intensive. The program is a 4-week long ballet intensive with a focus on Russian Ballet. Ballet training is essential for building my technical skills to prepare me for auditioning for universities and professional dance companies.  I was honored to receive a partial scholarship, and have been paying towards the rest. I have moved lawns and taught dance to earn money for dance expenses, but I still have $1,700 remaining for Harid room and board and related costs. Due to unforeseen recent financial circumstances, my family and I have not been able to fill in the rest. Funding sources that I was counting on fell through at the last minute, so I am in danger of losing out on this amazing opportunity! I would very much appreciate any help at all in meeting my goal, or getting as close as possible, by Friday, June 23rd. Thank you so much for reading my story and for sharing it with others!!!
