4FS is a non for profit organisation, that was established 9 years ago by Alice Walker when she was only 16 ~ Alice has always had a passion for dance and a belief that dance should be accessible to all.  In the early years 4FS worked primarily with Youth projects delivering dance workshops and opportunities to young people.  In 2010 Alice took 3 years out, to develop her dance skills and attended the University of East London where she gained her degree in Urban dance and Choreography.  Alice came back to fully establish 4fs into a Youth Dance Company, where she inspires and mentors young people daily. 

 

4FS is a non for profit organisation, and we do continuous fundraising to keep our project running and sustainable, enabling dance to be accessible to all. This year, our young people have been given the chance of opportunities near and far, these of course cost money,  we are fundraising to be able to continue to provide these at minimal cost to our 4FS families, reaching out to all the young people in the area, where they can benefit from the opportunities that 4FS provides.  4FS works in an area where opportunities are limited, unemployment is high and many families are benefit dependant, the area has sadly been designated an area of poverty and depravation. 

Community Dance is an art form, it can have a massive, positive impact on the lives of young people, building confidence, self-esteem, giving young people a huge sense of achievement, as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle.

4FS inspires, nurtures young talent, and provides a valuable creative artistic and performance opportunity for children and young people.  Alice understands how important it is to deliver her community dance classes, workshops and opportunities in a safe, educational, caring and supportive environment and this has shown that it has had an impact on young people and has encouraged them to aim high, self-belief, develop confidence and enable children and young people, who attend 4FS, to unlock their creative potential and provide a sense of wellbeing amongst them.
