    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    I competed with my team from Cornwall Dance School at Starpower International Talent Competition in Manchester on 13th May 2017. I performed a solo, duo and team dance piece and won 1st in all three. My solo won me the title of Miss Starpower 2017 and also left me with a scholarship to Starpower competitions, a personal invite to the World Dance Pageant in New York and to an invite-only dance training camp called the Power Pak in Disneyland, Florida.

    Places at the training camp were only offered to a select few, and I was one of them. I have only been dancing for 4 and a half years so to be offered the same opportunity as girls that have been dancing their whole lives, I was beyond honoured.

    I would really love to be able to attend this camp as it will be one of my last opportunities to represent Cornwall Dance School before I leave Cornwall for university in September next year. The camp is in August 2018, and supposedly falls on my 18th birthday, so that would be a pretty incredible way to spend it.

    Dancing is a huge passion of mine and I intend to carry on with it throughout my life, even if it is just a hobby. I would love the opportunity to represent tiny Cornwall up in America and show them what we are made of so please help!

    The funding would cover travel, accommodation, and any extra costs associated with the event, and I would be extremely grateful to anyone who was to donate even the smallest amount.

    I just want to say a massive thank you to my dance teacher Lisa, who has been the most incredible teacher I could ask for. Never has she given up on me and she's always believed in me from the start... even when I came to her with no dance experience whatsoever. She's the most talented and inspirational person I know and it's been a pleasure to dance for her. I want to make my last year with her as memorable as possible.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
