Charlotte to LA

Help Charlotte Dance Her Way To LA

Tararua College, Year 13 student Charlotte Gilmour is on her way to Los Angeles, USA. She is going for 2 weeks this April, taking classes at world renowned dance studios such as Millennium, Edge and IDA, while also performing on the famous Disneyland stage alongside other talented dancers. She trains up to 15 hours a week at the Maureen Ax school of dance. With the help of Tararua College and their Gateway department, Charlotte is given a day off school every week to get in extra hours of training to further her knowledge and skills of dancing. Having a school that supports Charlotte and her goals of becoming a professional dancer is amazing and makes life a lot easier when she has extra practices and training. This trip will contribute massively to Charlotte’s long term plans and really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Charlotte has been fundraising hard to get the finances for her trip. She is working and saving hard to reach her goal. To help with raising the last few dollars, Charlotte is running a couple of cake stalls outside Pahiatua New World.

Please help Charlotte get to LA!!!
Thank You Once Again!!
