Indepen-dance is celebrating its 20th anniversary, a remarkable achievement, as witnessed by the many hundreds of people whose lives have been touched by the work promoting inclusive dance.
To mark this achievement, and to further promote and develop the work of Indepen-dance, we have decided to set up Friends of Indepen-dance.
The purpose of the group is two fold: to spread knowledge and understanding of the work of Indepen-dance; and to raise funds. We need a source of reliable and continuing income to safeguard our work.
From as little as £5 a month, friends of Indepen-dance will be involved in the organisation and gain the following benefits:
• All friends will be invited to take part in, or to watch an open class.
• All friends will receive invites to previews.
• Friends will receive regular updates and newsletters about how we use the donations received.
• Friends will be offered reduced ticket prices to performances and events organised by Indepen-dance
• All Friends of Indepen-dance will receive a 20th anniversary badge pin.
How would your donation help us?
• £5 a month provides visual props which allows those unused to dance to approach movement in a creative way.
• £10 a month allows a disabled dancer to travel from the fringes of the city and back with enough support to start their class with confidence.
• £34 a month will allow us to deliver 10 classes, or 1 term to a group of 25 dancers with learning disabilities.
• £136 a month will pay for 4 terms for a class to develop their skills and form strong friendships with one another.
