The Language of Dance Trust runs the & 39;DanceMoves& 39; project, which works with over 250 children (aged 4 - 11 years old) from East London. The majority of these children would not normally have the opportunity to participate in dance activities and/or live in underprivaledged neighbourhoods.
The project focuses on raising childrens aspirations, confidence, self-esteem and physical activity levels and has recently been awarded the 2012 Inspire Mark, which shows that it is a recognised and valued provision running within the Olynmpic boroughs.
As a culmination of the project (which runs from September - July) we organise a Festival! This is the chance for the children to perform their own created dance works in a professional theatre to their peers.
Many of the children we work with could not afford to purchase a special costume and so to give everyone a sense of belonging and equality, we require funds to provide every child with a specially designed T-shirt to wear on the day and to keep afterwards!
Please help us, it really makes a difference for the children involved - all the funds raised will go to purchasing and printing the T-shirts!
We still have 75% to go!!
Thanks to everybody who has donated so far! We have 35 days left on our pitch, but ideally we would like to achieve the funds a bit sooner than that so we have plenty of time to get the T-shirts printed and distributed to the children!
A few people have mentioned having some problems donating through the site. Sorry if this has been you but please persevere, your donation really will make a difference!
Once you have registered please chose the level of donation and reward you require. Don& 39;t worry if your username is something other than what you would like listed in the festival programme (at reward level £30+)/name on our website (£70+), as once the pitch has closed (end of June) we will be in touch with all donors and you will have the opportunity then to let us know exactly how you would like your support recongised (and if you want a different name/business name listed).
Any problems please do give us a call on 020 7749 1131 and we can help you through the process.
Thanks for your support!
