Concert to raise money for ballerina's schooling
The Bouddi Foundation for the Arts will hold a concert later this month to help send a ballerina to a school in Germany.
St Huberts Island resident Amber Lynch has been accepted into the Iwanson School of Contemporary Dance in Munich for a three-year program.
Proceeds from the concert will go toward her expenses.
The concert will take place from 1pm on March 29 at the Wagstaffe Hall, with those performing alongside Amber including singer-songwriters Lucy Parle, Niamh Watson and Riley Lovell, classical pianist Kimberly Gilbert and opera singer Vivienne McClaren.
Jazz musician Mr Dorian Mode will host the afternoon.
"I'm really excited about the opportunity to study dance in Europe," Amber said.
"It is a dream come true."
Tickets for the concert are $20 and can be purchased from the Foundation's website or at the door on the day.
Amber is also running a Go Fund Me campaign called Get Amber to Iwanson to help cover the cost of travel and tuition.
