Raised by 84 people in 21 months
Dear Friends,

I have been accepted into the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) to pursue my Master's Degree in DIRECTING!!!

The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts only accepts six (6) people into their directing program.

You know me as an actress and have seen my work as a director grow and develop in the last three years.  Thank you for your support.

This is a exciting time to grow however I need your help in order to do it! 

LAMDA does not have housing for students and the cost of attending school is $24,000 for the year.

School starts September 26, 2016.  It is a one year (1) program.  I will complete an MA in Directing.

GOFUNDME monies will go toward:

First Quarter: I will be joining the new actors and taking voice, speech, acting and all technical analysis courses. 

I need:
-BOOKS ( LAMDA sent the summer reading list)
-more BOOKS (I will be given a full book list when I get to school)
-Blacks (clothes actors wear to every class in order to be neutral while working)
- Jazz shoes

Transportation:
-Oyster card (it's a metrocard that I will use to travel daily on the trains)
-Flights from USA to UK ( I found a great site for low cost flights)

Housing:
-Moving fees
(currently seeking housing in London in Zone 1 & 2)

Due to my being in America, I will potentially have to reach out to an estate agent to assist in my finding a place to live that is safe and close to school. 

LAMDA sent me a great list of people and places with maps of London.

TUITION:
-My initial entrance fee

What else:
IN January 2017, I will be assigned to assist 2 directors and begin creating my own project in March/April.  June and July I will assist a major theatrical project or film in London.  During the summer 2017, I will begin working on my own project that I will present as a thesis and I will finish strong in September 2017.

I will be eternally grateful for your assitance in making my opportunity in London a great experience!

I promise to bring back a wealth of knowlege and experience.  I promise to share and pay forward every dime donated to me to help others tell their stories by way of what I will learn at LAMDA.

Thank you!  Thank you! Thank you!

Best,
Bianca LaVerne Jones
