I am hoping to start and finish the three-year course at the New Zealand School of Dance (NZSD) next year. With your help, I can fill in the financial gap I have to cover the cost of the tuition fee. I want to return home once I am finished with my dance training and give back to the arts scene here in Canberra as a professional dancer.
I started dancing at age 7 at the centre for youth dance, QL2 Dance, in Canberra Australia. I have had a passion for dance from a young age and have been eager to start a career in dance for many years now. I have been working hard for the auditions to get into tertiary training institutions (especially the New Zealand School of Dance, NZSD (see – | New Zealand School of Dance). When I found out I got a place in the NZSD I was ecstatic and also worried about if it was going to be possible to go.
My family has been very accommodating to my passion for dance my whole life. Unfortunately, this is going to be very financially straining on my family if I can not achieve any financial help. I have worked and will be working in New Zealand to also help financially but the numbers aren’t adding up. The main issue why I need financial help is because there are no loans available, which means I need to come up with everything upfront. There is also very minimal Government support from Australia and New Zealand and no scholarships are available for the first year.
The funds I am trying to raise will be going towards the tuition costs. This will help a great deal by letting me focus on my study instead of stressing and working crazily to fill this financial gap. I hope that once I am finished with my training I can come back to my roots and be a local as well as an internationally travelling dancer. I am soooooooo grateful for all your support, I hope once I graduate I can put on a show and invite you all.
