My name is Barry Gans. I am 15 years old and I have been dancing since before I could walk. I believe that dancing is a new way to express who you are. People are able to live, laugh, love, and learn through expressive movement. When I was six, I went to an incredible dance convention called “Adrenaline”, where I met Jenn Freeman, one of the most inspiring dancers/choreographers that I have had the pleasure to work with in my life, and whose bio I am including below so you can see just how amazing this opportunity is and why.

Throughout the years, I have been going to two-week Summer Dance Intensives right here in Boise, where Jenn teaches for typically one of the two weeks. Her classes include some of the most inspiring, as well as physically and emotionally difficult dances I have ever had the pleasure of learning. This summer, Jenn, along with her company founder Sonya Tayeh and other critically acclaimed choreographers will be hosting a new dance convention called Elevate in Detroit, Michigan.
Although there are no current scholarship opportunities to help with the expense, if I do really well, I could receive a scholarship that would cover next year’s convention fees, which would be really exciting!
Going to Fresco Arts Academy has been an incredible experience. I have met many incredible dancers/choreographers in the commercial dance business that have opened my eyes to new ways of dancing and opening my heart up to dance but it comes with a price. It is very expensive to go where I go and do what I do. This is where I need your help. I have calculated the expenses of going to this convention including convention fees, airfare, hotel, and food. It all comes out to about 3,100 dollars. Making a donation could count as an early Hanukkah or birthday gift. And if by some miracle we are able to raise more than the amount for just this event, I have two other dance conventions or intensives this summer, and it would really help toward those. This could also be for someone who is just feeling generous. Please help me go to Elevated and have the experience of a lifetime.
