Weʼre raising £400 to help fund the South Yorkshire Youth Dance Company
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.
This is project is important as this project has been life-changing for some of the young individuals involved. Some may not have had the opportunity. It has raised their confidence, given them opportunities to be inspired by other peers and take part in events that they wouldn't have had the chance to before.
'It has been the best opportunity for me this year and I have made some really good friends in the company. Being part of SYYDC and dancing and working with other people has allowed me to see different interpretations of dance. By watching my company peers, I can see how they move and give feedback or use it as inspiration - South Yorkshire Youth Dance Company Dancer
We want to give this opportunity to more talented young people in the South Yorkshire region and build sub dance groups in all 4 regions (Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley & Doncaster).
The money will go towards transport cost for the youth dance companies to attend regular classes and also go and see professional shows in the region. Also, towards match funding so we can apply for a larger grant.
