Sarah’s en pointe for New York dream

A teen Ballet prodigy is dancing her way to greatness – this time to a New York class.

Sarah Perkins will dance in the American Ballet Theatre Collegiate Summer Intensive program for dancers aged 17-24.

Ms Perkins began dancing at the age of three and moved from Ballarat to Queensland aged 16 to take up full-time dancing.

Ms Perkins currently dances with the Queensland Ballet Academy. She says the New York ballet program will help her broaden her skills and progress her dancing career.

“For me, as a dancer I believe this will help me gain a wider knowledge and be able to see how different companies around the world function,” Ms Perkins said. 

“I had to submit a video of myself demonstrating specific ballet class exercises.  

“I believe there were over 3000 dancers who auditioned by video and in-person around America, so it is a real privilege to have been selected for this Summer intensive.” Ms Perkins has established a GoFundMe page. Help Sarah get to New York at GoFundMe.com.
