About This Campaign

May 5, 2013 UPDATE!! We only need $1,435.00 to meet our goal!

We have less than 50 days to go to meet our goal. We have had numerous dontaions given to us in cash or check  totalling $1,665.00. The site doesn't let us reflect that in our tally. So I will list the doners names here. I have lowered the goal to $1,435.00 to better reflect our progress. The following people have given us direct donations (Listing first initials only) M & C Hill-Tanquist, J. Daugherty, K & B Hale, A. Small, S. Kephart, L. Maisel, J & B Ayers, A. Stevens, C. Holden, L. Weckesser, L. Martin, P & P Haugan, and Valley Eye Care. Thank you to all these people that have made it a little easier for Bethany to attend this Summer Intensive.

Also Thank you to the Gazette Times who published a nice article about Bethany on April 10th 2013. See link above under "homepage".

Please consider making a donation to help Bethany reach her goal.

UPDATE: I have lowered the fundraising goal to $2,850.00! This is thanks to the very genererous and wonderful donations from friends and family that have been given to me directly. Thanks to them I am a lot closer to my goal!!

Some people have asked about how to donate, using this site you can only use Pay Pal. You may donate  any amount from as low as $1.00 or $5.00. You do not have to donate the amounts specified by my rewards.

Thanks very much to those who have been so generous so far!!

************************************************************************************

My name is Bethany and my dream is to be a professional ballet dancer. I don't even remember a time that I didn't take ballet. I love ballet class so much, I even love to watch ballets, I can also draw pictures of ballerinas.

Recently I auditioned for the Bolshoi Ballet Academy Summer Intensive. I was excited to learn that I was accepted to their summer program!! This is awesome because this isn't something that happens to every ballet dance student.

Now I want to go!

The Bolshoi Ballet Academy, in Russia, is the worlds best ballet school and has produced some of the worlds finest dancers. At the summer intensive I'll have the unforgettable opportunity to study with the very same teachers that teach at the Russian Bolshoi school; only it will be here in the U.S.

The program costs over 7,000 dollars for the tuition plus room and board. There are also the additional expenses of air fair and extra dance supplies I'll need (like more pointe shoes that are 100 dollars a pair!). If I meet my fund raising goal of 3,500 dollars that will fully cover my room and board plus my air fair.

There are many rewards available to those who donate; details are listed to the right, they include hand written thank you notes, drawings of a ballet dancer (done by me), and duct tape roses (also made by me). For people donating 500 dollars or more I will also reward you with one used autographed pointe shoe that was worn by me (only 4 shoes are available if I run out I will try to come up with something of equal value).

Thanks for reading about my campaign and watching my video.

 

Special thanks to the Corvallis Acadamy of Ballet for use of their studio. Also special thanks to my brother who filmed and edited my video.
