Uma Shannon Fundraising Performance on December 30, 2015

Dear Friends and Family,

Please join us on Wednesday, December 30th at 7:00pm
at East Street Ballet Theater at 47 East Street, Hadley, MA. Uma will be hosting a fundraiser to help with her upcoming spring semester AKLB expenses.

Uma will perform her latest choreographic work, her improvs, and show video of Wester, the well received piece she danced in, in the AKLB New Works Fall Showcase. Uma will also speak about her experiences at AKLB and what she has learned. There will be a reception following the performance.

Please come and/or share this event invitation with your friends and families. All donations are welcome and gratefully accepted.

PS: If you cannot make Uma's performance or if you are not local, and you still wish to help Uma, please donate to and/or share Uma's Generosity by Indiegogo campaign. By clicking on this link you can learn more about Uma by reading her story and her most recent updates.

Also, do you or a friend of yours know anyone who would be willing to host an aspiring, hardworking and talented young artist? Uma is urgently in need of housing, a place where she can cook for herself and sleep. She is almost never home as she dances from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm five days a week, and this excludes rehearsal times and commuting. Uma can cover her own expenses, but she cannot pay rent.

Thank you for supporting Uma so that she can continue her dance education at AKLB this spring, and thus her quest to become a professional dancer. Your assistance and care makes a dramatic difference in helping Uma continue on her artistic path, as we her immediate family are not in a position to help her much in this time.
In gratitude on behalf of Uma and our family,Miranda Shannon
