Alvin Ailey Dream Opportunity

Hi everyone:

My name is Myko Lyric, I am a recent graduate of NYU Tisch and a dancer from Los Angeles. Though I began dancing at three years old, I became more serious about a dance career in high school. During that time, I won a National Youth Award for Outstanding Choreography with Kaivalya Brewerton for our dance centered around the 9/11 Attacks. I was also invited to perform at the 86th Academy Awards alongside Pharrell Williams in his "Happy" performance. 

In college, I injured my ankle during freshman year and a series of different ligaments in my ankle, foot, and knee became affected as a result. I was not able to dance professionally for 3 years. 

With physical therapy and faith, I have recovered. Though this is only a summer intensive, it represents my opportunity to quantum leap and become a more competitive dancer in this industry. I will be in New York City, which also allows me to go on multiple auditions and meet likeminded dancers to expand my community and opportunities. There is also a chance to be invited into more programs within into Ailey School. Thus, this is a dream for me on many levels. 

I need help. My mom is a single mom, and the money I've saved has gone to NYU, rent, and other necessary expenditures. Though I have continued to save, tuition ($3000) plus living/food costs ($3000) are exactly what I'm struggling with. I need $5,000  by May 10th, 2018 to have the ability to attend this program. Anything you are able to donate in support of my dream is greatly appreciated!!

Thank you for reading this!
