Kiera Smith - Team Canada Dance

Hi! My name is Kiera Smith and I am a 10 year old dancer from Whitby, Ontario.  I absolutely LOVE to dance.  I have been dancing at Jennifer’s Arts in Motion for the last 4 years.  Not only has dance increased my coordination and flexibility, I have gained self-confidence and teamwork skills and have made friendships that will last a lifetime.  

 I recently auditioned for a spot on the Team Canada Tap Dance team and was chosen to represent Canada at the 2017 official World Tap Dance Championships held in Riesa, Germany this November.  I am so honoured and proud to be chosen to train and compete for my country!!

This amazing opportunity is a dream come true for me.

In Canada, Dance is not recognized as a sporting event even though many dancers train 5-7 days a week, are as flexible as gymnasts, as graceful as figure skaters and as dedicated as any other Olympic athlete.    Each dancer is required to raise their own funds to cover the cost of the trip (airfare, hotel and transportation), choreography fees, rehearsal travel costs, costumes and entry fees. 

Any amount that you could donate to help sponsor me would be VERY MUCH APPRECIATED.  

Thank you in advance for your support and contribution.  I can’t wait to represent Canada!

Kiera
