Personal messageToni Lawrence is a 20 year old dancer who hails from Sarepta, Kuilsriver in Cape Town, Western Cape.
Toni has been inordinately blessed with the opportunity to (together with a crew) represent South Africa at the DanceStar World Finals in Croatia during May 2020, after qualifying in the Cape Town qualification round in November 2019.
The South African Dance Team will be special guests, at the opening ceremony, of DanceStar World event. Flights and travel insurance are to have been purchased prior to visa application appointments which are scheduled for early February 2020. All other cost associated with this privilege have to be paid in full, by end March 2020.
Reaching this fundraising goal will ensure the realisation of a goal, a vision of Toni's to represent South Africa in her gifting and craft. A craft that she has diligently and passionately honed for the last 14 years.
It will be a stellar example that a government school educated girl from the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town, with a big dream, can:
- Study toward a Bachelors of Education: Foundation Phase without any financial aid (i.e. NSFAS, bursary etc)
- Work at an interim position in a school within her community
- Embrace her younger brother with special educational needs, which means in financial terms, accepting that a large chunk of the household income is channeled into his schooling, medication and therapies.
- Display the tenacity and work ethic (she avarages 4-5 rehearsals/classes per week) needed to attain the technical ability and expression required to be selected to represent her country at this prestigious international event
- Can "bloom where she is planted", despite the condition of the "soil" That with a God given talent, focus, hard work and a goal oriented mentatlity, it is not just possible to, but when given the opportunity, it is mandatory to defy the odds, navigate the obstacles so as to serve as an inspiration and help ensure the continued upward mobility of those so often left behind.
R35 000 will be used to cover:
Team attire and/or costumes
The myriad of lesser costs associated with international travel.
