My name is Angelic Louw, I started dancing in April 2016 and ever since, I could not stop dancing. Every day of the week I go to our studio , Wandi’s Dance Studio, and just dance. Dance is my anchor. When I’m angry I dance. When I’m sad I dance. And the same when I’m happy. Ever since I started to dance my dream was to go to Los Angeles and to dance with the extraordinary dancers from America. And finally this year my dream can come true.
I had a few auditions for a scholarship which Power In Dance offered.
They only took 6 winners of all the dancers in South-Africa who
auditioned at the workshops with Betty Rox and Amy Morgan from Los Angeles. And to my surprise, I was one of the winners. I now finally believe that everything happens for a reason.
The scholarship covers the 40 x 90min classes in LA at some of the top dance institutions and workshops with the top experts in the dance industry from the 5th of December until the 23rd.
Even though the scholarship offers a lot, there’s still so many things that I need to pay. I still have to collect money for the accommodation, airport transfers and metro card. As well as spending money and to buy food.
I’ve already done a few fundraising events but there’s still a lot of money that needs to be paid and my aunt won’t be able to afford it.
