Pippa - Ballet Dream Campaign

Personal message

My name is Phillipa McCann and I am a 17 year old ballet dancer from South Africa. Recently I had the privilege of auditioning in London for the English National Ballet School and I am lucky enough to say that I have accepted their offer into their three year training program.

This has been a dream of mine ever since I was little. I am happiest when I am on the stage so I’m sure you can imagine how truly grateful and excited I am to join such a prestigious school. The dedication and commitment from my teachers and parents will always be something I am eternally grateful for.

They have believed in me even when I have not believed in myself and they have shaped me into the person I am today. Without such loving and supportive people around me I fear my passion would have forever remained a distant dream.  

However, with this incredible opportunity comes the great financial costs my family is faced with, which is therefore why I am reaching out to fellow dancers, friends, family or even just generous readers of this page who are willing to help a dancers dream be realized. I can assure you that even the smallest donations will be greatly appreciated.

I hope that my passion will inspire younger generations of ballet dancers from South Africa and abroad to chase after their dreams as I am chasing after mine.
