I am not going to bore you with my history and about how passionate I have been since the age of 9 about wanting to own a dance studio and getting young people into dance. I am not going to tell you about the numerous scholarships and financial assistance I have given to young people over the past 26 years nor despite applying for grants and help I received rejection after rejection, along with the classic phrase :you are not eligible”.
After 25 years of hiring halls in 2014 I moved into a wonderful space funded through the hard work of my family and myself. Fast forward to 2017 and we have been resident in our facilities now since 2014. As I lease the building, the owners do not have to supply heating or cooling just the outside shell. As you can imagine this is far from ideal for the children and students and this is where I now need a little help from all of you.
To install an adequate system I need to raise £15,000. Again, no surprise here, I am not eligible for any grants etc. Can you help? This will not only benefit the young talented students I am nuturing, but the whole community as we invite people in to hire and use our facilities.
