We need your help!
With the success of TV shows such as Americas Best Dance Crew, So You Think You Can Dance, and Dancing With The Stars, and Movies such as Chicago, Hairspray, Step It Up, and High School Musical, is it any wonder why people of all ages have fallen in love with dance and all of it’s styles? So why then, are so many people, unable to take those first steps, fulfilling the dream of being a dancer?
Each year millions of children desire to take dance class, but can’t due to the financial restraints of their families, and our economy. Art programs are being cut from many schools. Most of the financial support go to sports programs, about 57%, with only about 3% going to the arts. Of that 3%, most of it is for older dancers, not younger dancers, who need it.
We are looking for people who believe in children . People who want to help to foster their love of dance. With your donation, you will help deserving young dancers develop and hone their skills, by supplying them with funds that can help to pay for lessons, shoes and dance wear, giving them the tools the need to survive in the dance world.
In addition a portion of the proceeds will go to help fight cancer. Cancer has touched the lives of several of our young dancers. At a time when most children are running, playing and dancing, these children had to spend much of their time in and out of the hospital, getting treatments that made them sick. Your donation could help fund the research, that will eventually find the cure.
By partnering with us, we will display your companies name on our site giving you Free Advertising! You have the opportunity to gain visibility and attract more business. Many of the children we help have parents who support or who would
be glad to support your business. It’s a win win situation for both parties !
In addition you will receive a report detailing our goal , and how the money will be spent. This way you can see just how your support has helped change the lives of these deserving children.
