Leilani’s Dance Fund

Sometimes a person must ask for help to achieve a goal. I have been dancing seriously now for about three years. Currently, I dance five nights a week in the styles of ballet, contemporary, and jazz, and I've recently begun to dance en pointe. En pointe means that I have advanced to being able to dance gracefully on the tips of my toes! All of these facets of dance add up in price and my family has made many sacrifces in order to suport my goals and dreams. However, dance is a pricey sport once you add up the cost of classes, rehearsals, performance, and costumes. I have recently auditioned for a program through my dance studio called Contemporary Dance Company. I was very excited to be accepted into this program because it will provide me with more opportunities for instruction and coaching. And, for the first time, I will be diving into competition dance.


While tallying up the costs of this opportunity, my family and I realized it is unmanageble for us to pay for. I need an addtional $2,000 in order to participate and I am wondering if my extended family members and friends might consider helping me achieve my goals. I know this is a lot to ask but anything would help! If you can donate to this passion of mine I  promise I will work hard and put my full effort into being a valuable member of the Contemporary Dance Company. If you can contribute, you will get a personal invitation to every performance and I will send pictures from every event and accompishment. You may have heard the phrase "It takes a village to raise a child," well it also takes a village to raise a dancer. So can you help? Will you be part of my village?
