Studio Fundraiser Campaign (indiegogo.com)

We are always striving to grow and make improvements within our studio and programs. Our vision is to be completely self-sufficient; this includes maintaining our very own facility. We would like this facility to include three fully-equipped dance studios and a full-size performance theatre. To make this dream a reality, we are launching an international campaign via Indiegogo.com to help raise $25,000! We have the nation's attention with this O Magazine article, and we believe we can make it happen!
Please support our vision, visit www.indiegogo.com/balletafrique.

We are so proud of our small studio—we were recently noticed by Oprah's The O Magazine for the work we do and our impact on youth of the community! Unfortunately this accolade will not help keep our facility open as we discovered that the building where we are located is in jeopardy of closing due to new management. This closure will have a direct affect on our students who are working towards securing performing arts scholarships upon graduation from high school and those who are just discovering the art of dance. This has accelerated our need to build our own facility, our own dance home!
 
Fundraising Goals
We are raising funds to create our own space so that we may continue providing quality arts programs to families who otherwise do not have the opportunity or means. Your donation will provide the students with proper materials to conduct classes, including mirrors, ballet barres, appropriate flooring for contemporary, West African, hip-hop, tap and jazz dance, and a roof over our head. We want to ensure these students have the same quality experience regardless of their economic surroundings. 100% of your contributions will provide aid in building a performing arts center that will serve the community for dance.
 
What this would mean for us
Your donation would not only provide the children and community members the ability to continue, uninterrupted with their dance training and education, it would also assist me in sowing seeds of self-confidence and culture-appreciation in these young dancers!
