A young Cape Town dancer with big ambitions needs you to help make her dreams come true.
11-year-old Owam Amey has been for a accepted to attend a summer dance programme in Los Angeles (LA) next year.
The World Class Dance Tour is a big opportunity for the talented dancer, but traveling to LA does not come cheap.
Her fathers Dean and Shaun Amey adopted the young girl when she was three-years-old and have been encouraging her passion for dance ever since.
Owam specialises in modern dancing and also performs some acrobatics and ballet.
Her dads started fostering Owam when she was six-months-old and say it was love at first sight.
She was only four when she started dance school and has never looked back.
The rising star says she hope to become a professional dancer one day and looks forward to more exposure.
