Let's get Owam to LA!

Personal message

WE ARE ALMOST THERE... PLEASE KEEP THE LOVE AND DONATIONS COMING!!!! SO CLOSE NOW!

As Parents we couldn’t be more proud of our Daughter. Owam has always been drawn to music and dancing, even as a toddler she would sway to music and started dancing almost as soon as she could walk. Hey sheer joy of music and dancing inspired us to send her for lessons when she was 4 and have not looked back. Owam flourished and couldn’t wait to go to class, and danced whether there was music or not, often making up her own songs and dancing as she did. 

Owam entered her first Eisteddfod at just 5 in 2011 achieving an Honours (80-89%) award in the 6 and under Modern section. Since then she has achieved over 25 Diplomas (90 - 100%) at the Cape Town and TDA Eisteddfods along with a number of special awards. 

We believe an opportunity like the World Class Dance Tour to Los Angeles would be invaluable in her growth as a Dancer and give her the tools to achieve her dream to be a Professional Dancer. It is our duty as parents to give her every opportunity possible to be the best that she can be and nurture her talents as best we can.

 Traveling to the U.S. for a child and parent as chaperone at the current exchange rate is costly to say the least. It is to this end that we humbly ask for your assistance to help us achieve a dream.

- Shaun & Dean Amey

 “Owam is a promising ballet pupil. She started ballet as an enthusiastic young pupil and has blossomed into a focused young dancer. Owam has a beautiful sense of natural performance and paired with her technical abilities she has excelled in performance opportunities, such as ballet Eisteddfods and ballet shows. It is exciting to observe Owam’s progress in dance.”

- Ilze Louw - Constantiaburg Dance Academy (Ballet teacher)

 “Owam is a naturally talented young dancer and performer whom shows grace and humility in class as well as on and off stage. She is exceptionally hard working and dedicated to her craft which can be seen through her remarkable results. Even through all of her accolades she keeps an innocent, loving and humble heart. She is an absolute pleasure to teach, every Dance teachers 'Dream'.”

- Teagan Lee de Marigny (Acro teacher)

 “Owam Amey is a talented young dancer with a very bright future. Dance is her passion and she is a dedicated, hard working student with a natural ability to stand out in every performance.

Owam joined my studio, Dance Incorporated at the age of 8 and had gone on to win the award for BEST JUNIOR ENTRANT at the TDA Eisteddfod of the Performing Arts, 2 years in a row.

She has received numerous first place awards and medals for her outstanding performances and has won Diplomas for all that she has entered since a young age. She continues to catch the eye of the Cape Town dance community with the way she presents herself, both on stage and off.

Owam has humility, and  has a great sense of humour. She is loved by her fellow dancers. Owam has a fabulous ear for music which shines through in her performance, and her ability to improvise is excellent at her young age.

Given the opportunity to travel overseas will see this little star grow to new heights. "

- Wendy Morgan - Wendy Morgan Dance Incorporated - (Modern teacher)

ALL SUPPORT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED! EVERY CENT MEANS OWAM IS ONE STEP CLOSER TO REALIZING A DREAM AND DANCING IN LA!
