Hi everyone reading! My name is Julianna I am 5 years old. I started dancing when I was 18 months old and have always loved it. We had a tragedy strike my family when I was just 2 1/2. My best friend and sister unexpectedly passed away in an accidental drowning accident at a grandparents house. I was extremely depressed and wouldn’t eat or play with anyone. Mommy asked me a few weeks later if I wanted to go to dance, to her surprise, I said yes. It was the only thing that made me feel happy again. I then dove full on into dance by joining a competitive team at 3. I have loved it so much it gives me a reason to get up everyday. Last year I preformed my first ever solo at 4. To everyone’s surprise it won and won and won. I even received a trophy that was taller then me for getting the highest scoring solo in all children ages 12 and under for solos duets and trios which is huge because I was only 4. This year I have been asked to do another solo and Mommy couldn’t say no(not because I’m a spoiled brat but because it’s therapeutic and she wants to give me every opportunity she can). Daddy works full time, mommy homeschools me and my brother during the day while raising awareness for ISR and works part time at night. We don’t have enough funds to pay for everything. The studio we are at does do fundraisers but 90% of them go twards dancers against cancer so not a lot goes back to us. I will give up all my time to support the cause, but I also need help paying for my  things as well. My Mommy came across this page and figured we would give it a try. I know I don’t have cancer or anything crazy but my parents are doing the best they can and want to give me this opportunity but unfortunately can not without help. I’d be forever grateful to anyone that helps me get to Nationals. Please check our last years solo video and or my Instagram page. @justdance_jewels 

There are a lot of costs that go into dance besides just the costumes and classes. Every competition we go to I have entry fees to pay, music fees, private fees, convention fees. How much I need raised does not cover any regular classes, travel expenses, or hotel stays. It is strictly related to just my solo. To have a solo I must preform in 2 group numbers as well so we have to pay for those too. We go to 4 competitions, 3 conventions (I believe) and 1 Nationals in Orlando, Florida and No I will not be going to a theme park.
