It Takes a Village

In response to overwhelming requests from aspiring young dancers to publicize their crowd funding campaigns through Brown Girls Do®Inc, we have established the 'It Takes A Village Directory'.

Nessaja Sharber

"I have watched Nessaja Camille transform from a bow-legged, pigeon-toed cherub of a baby, to a happy, but shy 7-year old who just wanted to dance. Now, through seven years of dedication and hard work, she has blossomed into a kind-hearted, beautiful dancer with serious aspirations of becoming a professional ballerina. On top of being a high school freshman who has maintained an A-B average throughout her entire educational career, she currently dances at least 8 hours per week. This work ethic has opened the door for many wonderful opportunities such as dancing in the Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in 2015, being selected as a Brown Girls Do Ballet Ambassador and dancing in the Open World Dance Foundation's production of Cinderella, featuring American Ballet Theatre's Misty Copeland and Calvin Royal III in 2016."...


Destiny Wimpye

Over the last 5 years many of you have watched me move across the country, perform with some major artist and even dance at The White House! Looking back, I can see just how much I have grown as a dancer. I have one of the best mom's in the world because she literally gave up everything so that I could have those opportunities. "

am almost there guys, but the next few years are the most important and the level of training I receive will continue to be more demanding for me and for my mom financially. That is why I need your help.
