About the project

I have been in love with Highland Dancing since I was two years old and naturally started competing at four. I'm now twenty five and have represented Australia in countries such as America, Switzerland, Canada and Russia. In 2021, I will be travelling to Scotland to compete in a range of championships and Highland Games leading up to competing at Cowal Highland Gathering; where the World Highland Dancing Championships are held in August.

Unfortunately as Highland Dancers we are unable to earn enough money through our sport to consider it a full time career, therefore our travel and competition costs come out of our own pockets. As you can imagine, flights to Scotland from Melbourne are not cheap. Then there is competition registration, accommodation, class costs whilst overseas, dance shoes and costuming, as well as the physiotherapy and sports doctor appointments leading up the the competitive season overseas.

Flights alone are estimated at $2,000 return.

Accommodation for approximately a month will total around $2,500.

It has been my dream for the whole of my senior dance career to compete at the World Highland Dancing Championships and I would love every gesture of help in getting there. Please assist me in working towards this dream with a tax deductible donation
