Anna needs your help!  She is a very hard working 13 year old who aspires (and has a very real chance) to become a professional ballerina.  She has been in dance since the age of 5, ballet since age 8 and on pointe (ballet shoes) since age 10.

Currently, she studies at one of San Antonio's premier schools for upcoming dancers.  She is part of the school's Junior company.  She pays for half her tuition by working as the teacher's assistant in the younger classes.  All told, Anna puts in almost 20 hours a week at dance.

Anna is trying to attend a very special ballet workshop offered by Ballet Magnificat in Jackson Mississippi in the Summer of 2014.  The Christian based dance company has toured in the United States as well as Czech Republic, Canada, Belize, Honduras, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Singapore, Germany, Netherlands, Slovakia, Poland, Belgium, Greece, France, Italy, Macedonia, Kosovo, Israel, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Cayman Islands, Switzerland, Korea, Philippines, and China.

As you can tell, Ballet Magnificat is a world class dance company.  But it gets even better.  Attending the Summer workshop(s) will begin to lay the foundation neccessary for Anna's ultimate goal: To be admitted to their trainee program.

"The Trainee Program is a one to four-year program with a mission and ministry focus. It is specifically structured for students age 17-24 who desire to achieve their fullest potential as a professional dancer." (quoted from Ballet Magnificat's website)

Over the years Anna has proved to us (her parents) that she has the talent, the disciplne, and the focus to make her dream come true.  She works hard at her craft and has a beautifully humble attitude.

Will you help Anna reach her fullest potential?
