khaleah's Story

My passion is dancing.

I was a very active child at the age of 3 so my mother chose to put me in dance class. And as I grew up I began to take pride in dancing and took dancing even more seriously while still having fun. I began to take more advanced classes such as pointe and tap. However, my favorite style of dance is jazz and acro/gymnastics. Attending the Broadway Dance Center Open Classes will help me become a better dancer. This opportunity could also open doors for me in the future in my pursuit of becoming a professional dancer.

A Note from Mr. Blakslee, khaleah's Mentor

Khaleah is a good candidate for Broadway Dance Center Open Classes because of her talent as a dancer, and her drive to succeed as a dancer no matter what it takes. Khaleah is passionate about dance, and working with Broadway Dance Center will give Khaleah the extra training that she needs and deserves in order to reach the level at which she is truly capable of dancing.

Campaign Activity

I am going to be participating in the dance program at Broadway dance center this summer. I am really excited to be joining the program because it will give me the time to dance . I feel that in school, there aren't many opportunities to get to do this, so, for me, dancing outside of school is the only way to do it. I think that this program will help me be able to express myself and boost my confidence.

I am looking forward to working with other people my age and sharing ideas and advice with one another. I chose this program because I have loved dancing ever since I was 3 years old and I constantly think of little dances that I choreograph to perform for other people to see.

Success! Mr. Blakslee helped khaleah raise $490
