“The pains I go through everyday is not remembered anytime I step onto my world of ballet…
please do not let my dream die.”
– Perla Anthony

Perla is a passionate seventeen year old dancer from Nigeria, Africa, who is fighting for her dreams amongst the hardship of poverty. Her ambition is to become a ballet teacher and share her passion for dance with other young Nigerians, however, with no organised Ballet schools in her community, her road to success will require a fairly unique pathway.

Josephine Woodberry, director of Brunswick School of Dance, is determined to assist Perla in her pursuit. She has been offering filmed ballet lessons while funding Perla’s return to secondary school, and has also launched a ‘go fund me’ page to raise enough money to bring Perla to Melbourne, Australia. Once in Melbourne Perla will undertake a Certificate IV Dance Teaching and Management, as well as regular Ballet training at Brunswick School of Dance.

The students currently completing the Certificate IV in Dance Teaching and Management at Transit Dance are presenting a special preview performance to assist with the fundraising to bring Perla to Melbourne.

On Wednesday the 20th of September, Transit Dance will present two performances of Motion Gallery (performed by first year contemporary students) and one performance of Neon Dreams (performed by the first year performing arts students).
You can read all about these shows here.

Kenya & Uganda orphan building project

The grand news is that ‘The Place Hotel’ in South Melbourne is having its 4th birthday on Saturday the 8th  of April and has asked the fab crew from ‘Northside Projects’ (aka Blender Lane Artist gang) to supply a Pop Up Market for their event. Only a few stall holders have been hand selected and Soul Stories is one of the lucky ones. Unfortunately l have already committed to another event on this day, but thats not to say l can still donate some goodies to help fundraise for their wonderful cause.

100% of the fund raising is going towards Gee Manofdarkness (George) & Nic (Nicole) who are volunteering in Uganda and Kenya on May 6th for about 4 weeks. They will be flying across with OrphFund a well run, ethical, Melbourne based charity that have been managing such projects since 2006. They have helped fund school, homes, water wells and so may more good deeds listed on their website. .The project involves revitalising previous project infrastructure and spending time with the children and coming up with great ideas to make their lives better. If funds are available they will also be looking to extend some dormitories in Karasundara, one of main projects.

As volunteers, Nic & Gee are asked to set a goal of $2000 to be apart of the project that support kids in these remote communities.
Every $1 counts. Click HERE to learn more…

She wanted the type of love
that would leave her senseless,
the kind that walked in the door
and pressed her up against the wall
~ with lips eager to please
and heart just as passionate as hers,
ready to make up for lost time
~ was that really too much to ask?
