I have been dancing at the Stellenbosh Ballet Association in South Africa since I was 3-years old. Despite many challenges I stayed with ballet to become the dancer I am today.

I have recently been given the opportunity to attend the Canadian National Ballet School from mid-October to mid-December this year. This is an amazing opportunity for which I am grateful and I plan on making the most of it. It is an opportunity to improve my dancing dramatically and an opportunity such as this can open doors to a career as a professional dancer.

The National Ballet School has given me a full tuition scholarship. I have also done several small local fundraisers to help contribute to my time overseas. I am doing this campaign to raise funds so that I can stay in the National Ballet School's on-site residence in Toronto with full room and board. I will have full days there with normal school in the mornings and dance until 6:30pm every day from Monday to Friday and dance every Saturday.

If you would like to help me achieve my goal please donate to this Stellenbosch Ballet Association campaign.
