Get Thomas to New York for Ballet CampaignThomas Started his Ballet journey at the beginning of 2020. He did one term and then lock down happened. Despite this, he continued on zoom calls to not loose momentum.
He went from strength to strength.
In 2021 he got the part in Peter Pan & Tinkerbell at the Artscape, dancing as the sweet Michael. After this show the performing bug hat bitten him.
Mid 2022 he auditioned for "Romeo and Juliet" by Veronica Paeper, where he got the role as one of the Urchins. He danced with international dancers such as Vadim Muntagirov as a live orchestra.
At the end of 2022, he got the role of Fritz in Veronica Paepers "The Nutcracker". Whilst dress rehearsals were happening we were told that he should audition for CJB, which is the junior City of Cape Town Ballet, which he has now been danicing with for the past 11 months.
He continues to go from Strength to strength. This year, he has danced in the "Symphony of Dance" hosted by CJB. Followed by Natalie Lissack's "Beyond the Wardrobe" which was her take of Narnia. He danced beautifully as Edmund.
On the 11th of November 2023, he auditioned to join the AAB Summer school for ballet in New York and in true Thomas style, got a 45% bursary. This is an incredible opportunity for my young dancer but the fees and flights are currently standing in our way to making this dream come true.
Any donations are greatly appreciated in helping me to make my young dancers dreams come true!
