Five years ago, I was introduced to contemporary dance in my first formal dance training, and since then I am learning from many teachers in India as well as visiting teachers from abroad. I have been accepted at PERA School of Performing Arts, Girne American University, Cyprus for a year-long program given an option to extend the course further into a bachelor’s degree if needed. Pera is offering me a 75% scholarship on tuition fee and potentially will be giving me a chance to study along with 3rd/4rth year bachelor’s students after evaluating my prior experience and knowledge on arrival. Being an aspiring dancer & choreographer, it is very difficult to expand my knowledge and train consistently in India and this is the reason I want to study at PERA School of Performing Arts.

My efforts to study in Europe have been ongoing for the past three years. Despite being accepted into six different schools and being offered scholarships, I was not able to go because of financial constraints. It is my last opportunity to pursue my higher dance education in Europe and thrive in the culture where Contemporary dance has evolved for more than a century. Studying abroad is not just about fulfilling my dream, but also about advancing toward my ambition of bringing the same contemporary culture to India. As a contemporary dancer in India, it is hard to get work or get funding for your research. This opportunity will open the door for me to work in Europe as a dancer, performer, and choreographer once I complete my studies. Nevertheless, I hope to also bring the same opportunities back to India through collaborations with other multidisciplinary artists residing here. Also part of my mission is to win the Indian society's appreciation for dance as an art form and not just as a source of entertainment.

So if you believe in me as an artist I encourage you all to donate as much as possible to help me reach my goal. I would like to emphasize the urgency of the fundraiser, since my semester begins in September 2022. It seems to be a big sum but if everyone donates even a small amount, it adds up to be as big as my future. It is my intention to use all the proceeds from the collected amount to cover my living expenses, tuition fee, and flight tickets. Additionally, share the fundraiser on social media to help me reach a wider audience and encourage your friends and colleagues to donate.
