Hi, my name is Tashi Goodrich and I am 13 years old.
I began dancing at the age of 3 and when I was 10 I discovered my passion for ballet.
I recently participated in the Australian semi-finals of the Youth American Grand Prix (YAGP) and have been invited amongst 3 junior dancers out of the hundreds of dancers that were competing
to the finals in new york in April.
This is an amazing opportunity as all of the biggest ballet schools are there watching and offer scholarships to incredible ballet schools.
I have also been invited to train at the Royal Ballet School in London for their spring intensive also in April.
unfortunately, I cannot afford all of it, but with your help, I can fulfil my dream of becoming a professional ballerina and participate in these once in a lifetime opportunities.
time is running out with only a few weeks before I go so please contribute in any way possible.
I will have to travel from Australia to Europe then to America. This is going to be extremely expensive.
the funds will cover travel, costumes, pointe shoes, accommodation, private lesson fees, tuition fees for the royal ballet school and many other things.
It would be devastating if I couldn't take part in these amazing opportunities just because I can't afford to go to them.
every dollar counts so please help get me to get there so I can achieve my dream of becoming a professional ballerina.
