Tess is a non stop and passionate performer.  She has auditioned and earned a spot at the IMTA convention in New York City in July 2014!! WAY TO GO TESS!

We are asking for your assistance to send Tess soaring into the next phase of her acting/performing career. In New York Tess will have the opportunity to learn from and perform for agents and managers in the film and TV industry.  PERFORMING IS HER DREAM!

This is an opportunity Tess has worked hard for and earned.  She had to audition for the president of her acting school and she was INCREDIBLE!  Not only did she perform her scene, but she decided to perform a song a capella last minute!

Tess has been taking acting classes as well as drama this year in school and has really taken her art to a new level.  She is constantly working on new scenes and routines to present to both school and her acting teacher.  The video camera is her best friend and her journal a constant confidant.

Long ago Tess was bitten by the acting/performing bug.  She is always acting out plays she wrote and scenes from her favorite books.  Tess has been performing in school plays and talent shows since first grade.  Her first public performance was a stand up routine with jokes she selected and even one she wrote herself.  Her latest performace was a skit she and her class wrote called Victor's Secret. 

Tess is not just a fantastic little comedian and actor but she is quite the singer as well.  She performed Girls Just Wanna Have Fun at  the 4th grade talent show as well as a little rap during her 5th grade performance.  Tess has had the good fortune of knowing some pretty amazing people who offered her the opportunity to sing back ups on the Rise Against song "Make It Stop".  That was such a fantastic experience for her to perform in a real recording studio!!

It's Studio Time!

Lastly, Tess loves to dance!  She will break out dancing in the middle of the street when and wherever the music strikes.  Tess will start a dance circle at any and every event.  

Dance Time

Really Tess just LOVES being on stage.  Whether it's a real stage or one she creates Tess is a consumate performer who loves to make people smile with her performances.

Please help her reach her goal of getting to New York for this amazing opportunity!!!
