A Step Closer to a Dancer’s Dream

Please consider giving a donation to help Andrea in her move to Los Angeles, CA to make her dreams of becoming a professional dancer come true. 

Andrea has always been captivated by movement and held a deeply ingrained passion for dancing. Due to her natural talent, she became the youngest member of her first studio's competitive dance team at just 4 years old. Throughout adolescence, she won multiple competitions alongside her team and discovered, without a doubt, she wanted to become a professional dancer...but life happened. After a five-year hiatus due to financial hardship, Andrea was given the opportunity to train at one of the best studios in the country. Within 3 years of beginning again, Andrea not only made it to the top 10 at national competition, but she was even selected to perform on the Ellen Show! 

Andrea's love for dance has helped shape her into the bright, compassionate and loving young lady she is today. She gives back and imparts her passion on young dancers by teaching at the studio. As mentioned, Andrea's always wanted to dance professionally. Now she finally has her shot! She will be moving to LA at the end of the month and hopes to sign with a talent agency soon after, but we want to make sure she is safe and comfortable while she gets on her feet!
