Dance Studio Project

Total raised £760

raised so far



Previously I had to hire different venues for dancing but due to Covid this is not possible. So I would like to open my own dance studio.

We're still collecting donations

On the 20th January 2021 we'd raised £760 with 22 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Sadly, due to Covid-19, most venues (especially attached to public houses/social clubs)  have had to close which has stopped me teaching my students.

These are unprecedented times so I am asking the community for your support to help me open our dance studio to get us all back dancing again so that our well-being and mental health continues to thrive. 

I would need to totally redecorate and renovate a venue which we have in mind, into a dance studio.

The below image shows the main room which will be used as the dance studio - This is currently being used as storage by the landlord (hence the boxes). This room will need a complete new floor, walls painted and mirrors put on, plus heating/mobile air-con unit, lights to be installed and curtains/blinds to be fitted.


The below image shows the ceiling in it's current state - To make this air tight and warm we would need to do additional work to complete the dance studio.


Below is corridor once you've come up the stairs - This needs new flooring, walls, doors and a complete new toilet facilities.


The below image shows the staircase - This needs new flooring, pipes/wires covered and repainted.


The below image is a blank canvas for a complete new kitchen area to hold a fridge, sink and microwave along with the walls and ceiling being plastered and painted.


Dancing is not only good physically and mentally but socially too. Our dancing community is one big happy family which brings us all together and welcomes and encourages the community to participate in any dance classes or workshops.
