Hello Sara,

Thank you for contacting me, it is lovely to hear from you.

I am sorry to hear you are finding it hard to find the money for dance lessons, I understand how you feel as money didn't come easily to me either when I was a training student.

If you are unable to find a job, I suggest you try and talk to your family again about your desire to take lessons. Talk to any Aunties, Uncles or friends too as they may be able to help.

Try negotiating with the place you have found to see if they offer any scholarships or bursary to help pay the funds.

Keep in touch, Sara. I believe with determination you can somehow resolve this problem.

All the best,
