Weʼre raising £1,000 to Integr8 Movement for Winchester Dance Academies
- Winchester, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Our Academies aim to provide affordable, accessible dance classes for young people aged 11-18 living in particular areas of Winchester. We currently have 3 classes that have been running in 3 different areas in Winchester; Winnall, Stanmore and Harestock. The academies aim to turn young peoples lives around by training them in dance. We work with young people who often struggle at school, struggle to fit in, struggle with mental health and life’s many challenges or for whom dance may not be as accessible. These classes are made accessible by only costing £10 per term for young people living in the area to be involved. Our aim is to support them through providing a place for them at our dance academies where they can learn dance, build friendships, work towards community projects and performances. We believe it is so important for young people to access dance as we know the power it has to change lives.
We know that these is a need for these classes based on young people’s attendance to them and the impact it's had on those who have attended these classes. We want to continue to develop and grow them and be able to offer the students more opportunities to get involved in the community and activities and we need help from the community to do this. Anything you can put towards helping these young people to thrive in one of our academies in their communities would be greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference to keeping these opportunities available to the young people who greatly benefit from them.
