Carolina is raising money for a trip she has been invited to attend this upcoming summer 2014 with her dance group Baila! Baila! She is selling raffle tickets--$1 each. The grand prize is a wonderful basket filled with items such as Scentsy, Pampered Chef, Close To My Heart, Jamberry Nails and so much more is being added daily. The drawing will be held on January 15, 2014. 

Here is a little video about Carolina and her dancing journey so far.
Please come back here and finish reading about her trip 

Carolina is a dancer with Baila! Baila! which is a dance studio that specializes in the art of Traditional Mexican Folklore Dances. She currently dances with the 10-13 year old advance group. She started dancing at the age of 6 and loves it! 

Carolina is cordially asking for your support for her trip next summer. Her invitation from Baila! Baila! (as part of the dance studio) will be a trip to New York. While in New York, she will get to dance at the Statue of Liberty and then travel to DC to dance at the Lincoln Memorial!! Carolina is extremely excited to be invited and of course to go! 

Her travel expenses are $2150 and she is asking for your help in raising the money to get there! You can donate anything! Every dollar helps!
Please buy as many raffle tickets as you would like

($1 each, the tickets will be mailed to you).

The video has clips showing that she practices every day and is always moving her feet (don’t know how many times I have to remind her stop moving your feet when we are in public, LOL)! 

She has performed at churches, schools, fiestas, New Mexico State Fair, retirement homes, parades, the Governor’s Luncheon (which was the governor’s conference with governors from NM, TX, AZ and Mexico) and the and the most recent a dance competition in Pueblo, where their group took 2nd place! 

One year she was asked to dance a solo at an event, at the age of 7 (but she danced like a professional—not scared at all, LOL). There is a video of her at the end of this letter (the video was captured by her brother, so it is a little shaky).

As of October 1st, she has been rehearsing for the upcoming Christmas Show (in Albuquerque, December 7). She dances 2 days a week for a total of 5 hours, sometimes more. She is extremely dedicated (though she comes home exhausted and usually asleep by the time we get home, my poor baby).

The video also shows the chaos backstage—but the shows are worth it. The picture is what the backstage looks like (this is the annual Christmas Show 2011). 

She has made great friends and memories that will last a lifetime!

Once again, Carolina would like to say thank you for your support in her next great journey in her dancing career. Thank you!!
