Royal Ballet School for Summer

Lili, 16 years old, has the opportunity to study at The Royal Ballet School in London this summer for a month. As her mother but also the Ballet Mistress at Colorado Ballet with a life time experience in the ballet world, I can say unbiasedly, that Lili has incredible potential as a dancer in spite of missing four fingers (which for some purists would make a career unlikely). However once she starts moving, her power and strength overcome everything.

She recently was one of 500 dancers worldwide out of 20,000 to go to the New York finals of the Youth America Grand Prix having placed 3rd in the 2019 Denver regional semi finals.

Lili has the ambition to pursue a career and having this opportunity at The Royal Ballet School is a dream for her.
Fortunately we have enough miles to get her flights and the school has given us financial assistance but still the cost is $3,000 plus she needs at least 4 pairs of pointe shoes which cost $90 a pair.
