To fund professional photographs showing the joyful expression, the dynamic power and the blissful tenderness that can be experienced in Vital Danza.
About the project
After 5 years of spreading health and happiness through Vital Danza I AM NOW READY to attract a whole new crowd of people to this fun and liberating system of personal growth. I wish to share the incredible benefits I have gained from this system of guided-dance with a wider audience.
I am creating a website and have been studying some marketing techniques. The question I keep asking myself is "how do I describe the expereince of Vital Danza in a clear and concise way?"
The answer BY USING IMAGES. For a picture speaks a 1,000 words So I am asking for your support.
Inspired by Amanda Palmer and her work on the Art of Asking Amanda's TED talk. I am turning to my crowd/community to ask for £500 to pay for two professional photography shoots and a new super dooper so I can record my own video clips
I feel my crowd includes YOU and anyone who believes that life is meant to be joyful and that we can create a happier and healthier society through building loving connections with those around us.
I have already chosen the photographers:
- Lynda Kelly - Her proect Finding Grace is divine
- Charles Yacoub - Who took some gorgeous pictures of a tango teacher I know
I'd Like Lynda to up-date my head shots....to replace this one!!
And I'd like Charlie to capture the movement of Vital Danza.
What is Vital Danza/Vital Development?
For those of you who don't know - Vital Danza is a dance class with a difference: There are NO STEPS to learn.
It is light-hearted, interactive ad gently transformative. Participants are guided through a range of exercises designed to promote vitality, joy and creativity. Benefits from attending sesions include; feeling more ease in your body, increased self-confidence and improved relationships.
It is taught and practices all over the world. Created by Patricia Martello and Marcelo Di Matteo.
Who is Helen Thatcher?
Helen is a warm and welcoming facilitator with over 13 years expereince of leading groups. She is very motivating and has a postive, humorous approach. Her sessions are relaxed and enjoyable.
I offer regular groups around Sussex, also specialising in adapting the exercises for elderly clients and adults with learning difficulties.
"Helen is an inspiration and a breathe of fresh air. I was made to feel instantly welcome and gained a sense of belongly. Helen guided us to get in touch with ourselves, connect with others and be in the present moment. I came away feeling relaed, invigorating and full of joy" A.M Horsham
"I had no idea what to expect when I turned up for my first Vital Danza session with Helen, but after just a few months it has gone well beyond what I could have imaged. I have been amazed how this gentle and joyful practice has impacted on and hugely improved my quality of life. My anxiety has diminished and I feel so much more confident to try new things. I would recommend anyone to give it a try." P.N. Brighton
