    Weʼve raised £4,327 to help fund the building of a new dance school

    Shaftesbury, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 30th September 2018

    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.


    We’re guessing that most people who visit this page will already know us, but if you don’t, TLW Dance is a local dance school in Shaftesbury, Dorset, offering a full range of dance classes to girls and boys from 3-years to 18-years old.

    With around 230 local children dancing each week in our dance classes, we have become a hub of dance activity for both boys and girls from around North Dorset, whether for fun or for those who take dance more seriously.

    Founded nearly 8 years ago by Tiffany Longley-Wolff and Lynne Stratton and based in a one-studio building, TLW Dance has grown very quickly and successfully and we love trying to make a difference to the lives of our young dancers. We see them blossom and grow in confidence and ability, with many becoming ‘obsessed’ by dance!

    Some of our students have gone off to dance, acting and musical theatre schools, and all of our younger dancers aspire to be part of the TLW Dance Company. Though many only dance once or twice a week, each and every dancer is important to us and, at least every two years we put on dance show with costumes and props, involving every single one of our students. No matter how young or small, every dancer gets the chance to perform in one of our shows.

    We would love to bring the chance to be part of TLW Dance to more children, and to offer more classes, but with just one dance studio currently, we are fit to burst.

    But now, great news, the plans have been approved, and the building work has started, and very soon we will have a brand new building with two stunning dance studios. We can hardly believe this is happening!

    BUT, we haven’t yet secured all the funds for the new studios. So we’ve put together this page to try and raise some funds. And, to thank those who make a donation, we have also put together a few very special rewards, to try and help with this last final push to raise these much needed funds.

    We hope you’ll join in, and that there are some rewards for your kind donations that you would love to grasp. We appreciate any donation, no matter how small, and we thank you for taking the time to read this, and please don’t delay in donating to secure one of these special rewards, as some of them are very strictly limited, are on a first come, first served basis and some will never be offered again!

    You can donate any amount whatsoever, so please don’t be limited by our suggestions, but these are the rewards we can offer:

    If you donate £5

    We’ll give you a Bronze reward and your name will be entered into a draw for three (yes, that’s 3!) private (one-to-one) dance lessons with either Miss Tiffany or Miss Erica.

    If you donate £25

    We’ll give you a Silver Level Reward and your name will be entered into a draw to win 6 month’s dance school fees at TLW Dance.

    The winners TLW Dance School account will not be charged the normal monthly dance fees for 6 consecutive months from the date of the draw.

    For the first 50 people who donate £50

    We will give you a Gold Level Reward of an Annual VIP Package and you'll become a Friend of TLW Dance and will receive:

    • VIP Priority Booking: You will have the opportunity to purchase up to 4 tickets to the Summer Dance Show in 2018 one week before the public sale of the tickets.

    • Show Programme: Two free programmes for the Summer Dance Show 2018

    • VIP Access to Dress Rehearsal Performance: Two free tickets to the Dress Rehearsal of the Summer Dance Show 2018

    For the first 20 people who donate £100 or more

    You will receive the very limited Platinum Level Reward and get ‘Your Name on a Step’ in the new TLW Dance School.

    Strictly limited to 20 Steps and one name per step, you can leave your mark on TLW Dance for years to come for making a very generous donation of £100 or more and making a significant contribution to our fundraising programme.

    Of course if anyone would like to make a donation without receiving a reward, we would be more than grateful, and we thank you from the bottom of our dance shoes!

    Thank you to everyone who contributes your kind and generous support is invaluable!

    And, of course we will keep you regularly updated with progress

    Here are the plans for the new dance school!

    The building is starting to take shape!
