Get Mekeba to LA to live his dream!

Mekeba was accepted to Debbie Allen Dance Academy's summer intensive. The total tuition is $1,550 and the cost for housing is $2,750. A $1,000 down payment is due by April 20, 2015. The rest of the cost is due by June 5, 2015. Dancing is everything to Mekeba. His biggest dream is to become a professional, and he knows that going to this summer intensive would be the building blocks to getting him to his dream. Mekeba is a straight "A" student, he has a 3.6 GPA, and is offically a member of the National Junior Honor Society.

Mekeba has only been dancing for a short period of time. He has been trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, African, and Latin. Though he has a long way to go, Ms. Allen saw something in Mekeba and personally chose him to be apart of the summer intensive. Mekeba lives with his mom. She is a single parent of three living on a fixed income. Not only is Mekeba a good student, both dance and school wise, he also is a good person. At 13 he helps his mother with anything, even if she doesn't ask.

Please help us send Mekeba to LA to attend the DADA Summer intensive. This is something that Mekeba has wanted since he first started dancing.

Thank you
