New stretch target

This extra money will continue to futher the development of the aformentioned... increase our network, provide facilitator training, produce training manuals and resources for ATD changemakers.


It started out as an idea to connect like-minded dancers who wanted to explore, seek meaning and use their talents to give back to the world. It is now a thriving network, running annual international experiences and working with local communities to support and empower real sustainable change.

Since the beginning we have run the organisation from coffee shops, sofas and kitchens and have gone through many a cup of tea, packet of biscuits and occasional bottle of wine! We have never had any investment or funding and we are proud to have made it this far just by determination, passion and a desire to see change.

Now, 3 years later, we are ready to take ATD to the next level and we need your help. Help us to raise 5K and support the further development of a community of international dancers and artists who want to engage and give back to their communities.

We strongly believe that without dance, life would lack meaning, so many cultures have dance deeply rooted in their traditions, it really is a medium to connect the world. Help us to keep the art of dance alive and we promise to use every penny to make as big an impact on as many lives as possible.

Thank you!

Megan and Claire

How your money will help us

  • Development of the ATD platform - improving and maintaining a virtual community network with tools and resources for dancers to use in their own communities

  • Increased access to ATD Facilitator Training - having a passion in the arts is one thing, having the knowledge and skills to be able to use the arts to facilitate change in your community is another. We have developed a facilitator training programme that trains dancers in these necessary skills.
  • Creation of manuals and resources for out international community members to support them in their work in their communities

With your support, we can create this network for change and show the world how dance can really make a difference.
