This October 2018 I wish to travel to the Philippines for three weeks. Through the Performing Arts Abroad organization, I will be teaching dance with the wish to make a difference in the lives of the children who need it in Tacloban City.

Tacloban City was hit by the Typhoon Haiyan that destroyed the area and the local community is in need for volunteers to help rebuild and improve the area and bring the love for arts to the local children and people.

Dance has played an important role in my personal growth and development throughout my entire life. I see dance as a powerful mean of expression and tool for making a change. My passion for dancing led me to study contemporary dance and choreography in Copenhagen. However, as a student, I see it as a privilege to be able to benefit from the education and teachings. Now, I wish to share the knowledge in return and give that possibility to those in need.

I wish to share the joy of various dance techniques with children, both as an educational and an artistic form of expression. Through dance, I want to explore the possibilities of self-expression and creativity. I believe that creating the space for children to express themselves and having a supporting community, where they can have an artistic outlet, is extremely important and valuable. I would be happy to be part of creating such a creative and encouraging environment for the youth in the Philippines.

Therefore, I am reaching out to you to support me to bring the joy of dance and creativity to the young people of Tacloban City community. Any donation will be wholeheartedly appreciated and will go directly towards covering the cost of the program and flights - making my trip and my work there possible. Any excess amount will go directly to support the lives of the children in the Tacloban City community.

Thank you so much for taking your time to read this and thank you for your support!


Warm wishes,
VIvian
