Open Jar Institute

I was recently accepted as one of the 60 college students across the country to attend the Open Jar Summer Institute . This program is a week of high intensity workshops in singing, acting, dancing, and audition techniques with Broadway. In addition to these classes, we also see Broadway shows every night, and meet with casts of these shows in backstage tours and talk backs. This is going to be such a valuable experience, but I cannot afford it on my own. I am very new to GoFundMe,  but I know that it is a very useful platform for something like this. Please, do not feel obligated whatsoever, but I would be so greatful for any donation. Every penny counts!

The fundrasing goal includes meals, tuition, and transportation there and back.

I will also be performing a small concert at Crossroads Church in March, with more details to come!
