    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Dance Across the North (D.A.N) is made up of a group of northern partners who have joined forces to encourage more people to engage with dance.
    Led by Leeds-based Balbir Singh Dance Company (one of the best organisations of its kind in the country) we will deliver workshops, flashmobs and live shows in a variety of northern towns and villages throughout the autumn months.
    Our Just Giving campaign focuses on raising money to support the workshops and flashmobs we deliver.
    Delivering workshops is a very valuable thing to do. Participants often experience a boost to their self-confidence whilst developing key skills such as team work, leadership skills, performance skills and self-management.
    This type of work is costly so we are politely asking for YOUR help. Just a small donation of your hard-earned cash could help to deliver workshops leading to flashmobs in the FIVE northern communities listed above.
    If you have been lucky enough to have already enjoyed a workshop or flashmob we would really appreciate it if you would help us in our quest to ensure more northern communities are able to connect with dance.
    Please help us by giving what you can.
    * D.A.N partners are; ArtERY Live, LiveLincs, Spot On Rural Touring, Highlights Rural Touring, Arts Out West, Cheshire Rural Touring Arts, and Get Moving. All are members of the National Rural Touring Forum. More here http://blaize.uk.net/category/dance-across-the-north/
