We are a local dance company comprised of young people aged between five to twenty four, and we’re writing in the hope that you can help us with an amazing opportunity.
We have been invited to represent Cornwall in a highly prestigious, international dance convention hosted in Los Angeles in 2020 by the world renowned organisation Dance Excellence, who have been following us on social media for the last two years. Invitations to this event are very hard to come by and we will be only one of twenty seven other companies from across the world attending.
You can imagine what an honour it is to be hand selected and what it means to the company whose hard work has made this possible.
The convention will last six days during which time the company will take part in master classes run by industry professionals, many of whom have worked with famous celebrities such as Beyonce. The convention will be also be attended by talent scouts and agents, Universal Studios, Disney and Young Americans are only a handful of the organisations who will be actively searching for new talent.
It is not an over exaggeration to state that this trip could be a life changing event for us, providing our company members with a vital head start in an intensely competitive industry.
Unfortunately the trip does come at a steep cost and the reality is that many of our members are from disadvantaged backgrounds, some have never left the country before. To make this opportunity a reality and to ensure that these young people fulfill their potential, we need to raise a total of £37,500.
The company have already started organising cake sales, raffles and bag raises but at a cost of around £2,500 per person we need help. We would be immensely grateful for anything you could donate. All money raised will go towards transport, accommodation and materials needed for the trip.
We hope you can help us put Falmouth onto the global stage. We would be very grateful for any donation.
