My Travel Story

by: Ianna Gonzalez Start Date: Apr 15, 2024 - End Date: Aug 12, 2024
I have something to share with you, an exciting opportunity of mine. Over my winter break I auditioned for the Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive 2024. Recently I was delighted to hear that I had made it into Alvin Ailey’s Summer Intensive 2024 Professional Division. Currently I am reaching out to request support in raising the necessary funds to attend this program in New York.

Dance is a very important part of my life, it serves as a form of self expression that can’t be put into words. At the age of 11 I auditioned and made it into a ballet conservatory program where I have been honored to train with Andrea Pell for the past six years. The Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive represents the next chapter in my journey, offering a platform to expand my skills, knowledge, explore my boundaries, and gain insights from accomplished individuals.

Throughout my journey as a dancer my parents have shown unwavering support and they have made numerous sacrifices to foster my passion to grow. The financial commitment that is required for this program, including tuition and housing, is substantial. I am seeking out assistance in reaching a fundraising goal of $6,000.

I assure you that any contribution you make will be sincerely appreciated, and I commit to keeping you updated on the progress and experiences that unfold during the Alvin Ailey Summer Intensive.

Thank you for considering my request. Your support will not only aid in my pursuit of this unique opportunity but will also be a testament to the collective encouragement that fuels my aspirations.
