I’ve wanted to be a professional dancer since age 8 – it’s absolutely my dream. Ballet is expensive – a pair of pointe shoes costs an average of $70. I go through about a pair a week – That’s about $3640 a year, just on pointe shoes. Add in tuition for one 5-week summer program in Chicago…that’s $2200. For my year-round ballet program – $2376. That doesn’t include other necessary dancewear and expenses, either.
In addition to my ballet training, I am a full-time student in the East Grand Rapids school system. In my spare time, I work on babysitting commitments and developing my blog and YouTube channel to raise money for my cause.
Because of these expenses, I need some help continuing to dance and support my training.
You can donate to my funding campaign below. Thank you for the help, I’m truly grateful.
