About us 1592295416_group.jpg

Since 2013 Marina Studios has striven to enable everyone to experience the joys of dance delivered by our incredible teachers. By providing an extensive timetable we create opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds; everything from StreetDance to Afrobeats

The impact of Covid-19 “lockdown” has meant that over 15001594892262_1594892262343.png of our loyal users have been missing out on dancing. This has also included those involved in our outreach Youth Empowered by StreetDance (YES) project devised for young people from targeted communities

However, with welcomed support from key local and national partners we have been able to move the YES project to an online platform. We have also worked with Active Sussex and Sussex Police on the REBOOT project which has engaged over 1500 young people online and kept some of our wonderful teachers teaching.

We are also thankful for additional eA group of people walking in front of a crowd  Description automatically generatedmergency funding from Sport England and ACE which has covered some costs and means we can be optimistic of making it through these difficult times. 

Our Campaign 

Through our new Crowdfunder campaign we hope to raise funds to support Marina Studios Foundation to find its “dancing feet” again. We need to prepare the building to re-open safely and need staffing costs in order for our dedicated team to deliver classes’ online – outside – inside at Marina Studios again. In doing this we will help our wonderful members and supporters, new and old (in time not age!), find their own dancing feet once more.1592295764_heels.jpg

Donations will receive Gift Aid and we are hopeful that we can also achieve match funding which will double any donation you are able to make.

Thank you for your time and support.
