First of all, can I just say thank you for taking the time to look at this page. Even taking that first step and having a look means you care, so thanks!!
Now, you all know that musical theatre has been a HUGE part of my life and this is why I moved to the UK; to pursue a career in the arts and to sing, dance and act till I couldn't do it any more! So I've been working hard with a singing teacher (Matthew Anastasi) and a personal dance coach (Irene Wernli) to get myself up to a standard where I could audition for a musical theatre training school.
Thanks to Matt and Irene, I successfully auditioned for AMTA (American Musical Theatre Academy) in December 2012 and was offered a place on their 2 year training program! SO HAPPY!! ^_^ I am now that BIG step closer to living my dream. Click HERE to read more about the school. They sound pretty gosh darn amazing to be honest (2 weeks in New York training ON BROADWAAAAAAYYY WHAT?!?!?), and I know I will be worked very hard, but the results at the other end are what are important! So all the sweat and aches and all that will be well worth it in the end when I'm working in the industry!
However... and this is a BIG however, who'd have thought it would cost money to go to a training institute like that?! Well it does... £20,500 for the two year course... And I'm not even gonna START talking about living costs.... Luckily, I can get a bank loan (blerg >.<) for the second year (£10,500) but the first year I can't... I will be working my arse off up until the start date of the course, September 16th 2013 and I have worked out that while living kind of like a hobbo and still going to singing lessons (singing is like a sport, you have to keep training the muscles, so I still need these!) and dancing lessons (see notes about singing) I can raise about £5000 on my own.
THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN!! So with your help, even just a fiver (or more, I'm not going to say no to more!) would go a long way to helping me achieve what will be the most important two years of my life and would leave me eternally in your debt.
I love you all, and those who know me well know just how much this means to me and know that I've been working hard all my life to get where I am today and up until now I've tried my best not to ask for monetary help, but this is quite a large sum... Anywho, I'll stop talking now!! Please give whatever you can spare!!
