    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Popping For Parkinson's is a community dance project that offers free Popping dance classes to people with Parkinson's disease.

    This project gives patients the opportunity to engage in a fun, social activity in a safe space where they can fully express themselves through dance while fighting social isolation, depression, physical pain, low confidence, stress and more. We specialise in providing Popping dance classes for people with Parkinson's because it is one of the most effective ways to gain a better quality of life.

    "This program invites people with Parkinson's to explore this funky, rhythmic style of street dance and experience the joys and benefits that come with it. Simone's energetic, compassionate teaching and deep knowledge of the form create a safe and stimulating environment that engages focus, coordination, musicality, social connection and propulsive inner groove" (David Leventhal, Program Director and Founding Teacher, Dance for PD)

    This is the first project in the world to deliver Popping technique as dance-therapy.

    "Since I started Popping, I don't feel so depressed. I am more happy, which is something I've lost for a while" (Philip Friend, student)

    We want to keep all our classes free of charge for students. In order to do that, we need to make sure our classes are sustainable first. By donating you will be helping us get up and running.

    "I have witnessed the positive impact of Popping for Parkinson's in Simone's classes and he has created truly powerful concept. His passion and dedication to support the Parkinson's community through teaching dance is incredibly inspirational and demonstrates how dance can enhance wellbeing in so many ways, whatever your age, background or condition" (Tania Diggory, Founder of Pioneers History Dance Festival)

    All the money raised will go towards running Popping For Parkinson's. Every little helps! The more money we raise, the longer we are able to run the classes. The money will also help us sustain the project for longer, reaching more people, funding a Popping For Parkinson's international tour, creating new classes, videos, songs and much more!

    With your backing, Popping For Parkinson's can continue to help these vulnerable yet strong and inspirational people through dance. It's time to "shake it off"!

    Thank you for believing in us and our mission!

      Love this! My mum has tremors... I might suggest she takes up popping.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
