Personal message

My name is Sarvariya Pillay also know as Ariya, I am seven years old and from South Africa. From an even younger age I have had a love for music and dancing. With my love for dancing my parents enrolled me at the Dance Academy in our hometown Empangeni in KwaZulu Natal. In July this year our dance school entered the Talent Africa competition where I performed my first ever solo.  Here I received a high silver and obtained my district KZN colors which allowed me into the next round for nationals at Sasolburg in October.


This was such an amazing experience dancing at the Ettienne Rosseau Theatre in Sasolburg. At this competition I received a gold medal and I have been selected to represent South Africa at the “International Performing Arts Championships” in New York, 23 June to 1 July 2024.


The total estimated cost of the tour is R63 500.00 per person, as I am still very young my mum will have to accompany me. The cost includes the following


  • Air ticket
  • All tours
  • Travel insurance
  • Transfers between hotel and airport
  • Team uniform
  • Admin fee
  • Accommodation

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I hope you can help me participate by sponsoring me. With your financial support not only will you be helping me, but you will be making my dreams come true with memories that will last a lifetime!    

Thank you for your time and consideration. 

Sincerely yours,

Ariya Pillay
