Hello, my name is Sasha West. I am a 12 year old honor student studying dance at Gwinnett Ballet Theatre. I have been dancing since I was eight years old, and have dreams of becoming a professional ballerina. I have performed in numerous productions. Most recently, I had the leading role as Clara in "The Nutcracker" at Gwinnett Arena's Performing Arts Center.
Many would say that my passion for dance is undeniable. On a daily basis you will find me walking on tip toes, doing pirouettes and leaping all around the house. I spend countless hours at the studio training, which is worth the sacrifice to me because I really love it.
I am constantly looking for ways to improve my craft. Earlier this year, I auditioned for summer dance programs at Joffrey Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and Next Generation Ballet. I was accepted into all three programs. However, I have chosen to attend the three week program at Next Generation Ballet this summer in Tampa, FL.
Awarded "Outstanding School" at the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), New York City finals, Next Generation Ballet (NGB) is a stepping stone for great talent. Featuring 30 to 35 hours of instruction weekly, the NGB Summer Intensive program offers the perfect mix of a daily intense dance schedule, a structured and safe environment, and a professional performance opportunity on a world class stage.
The cost for this three week training program is $3,000, which includes tuition for the program, room and board. I am asking for your support to help with the cost of attending the summer intensive program. The due date for all funds is May 1, 2014.
Thank you for your support of my dream
