Supporting Dance Communities in the Covid-19 era

Hi everyone,

I hope you are doing well.  My name is Nico, and I am the owner of the Flying Dance Community

Dance has been one of the hardest-hit industries impacted in this crisis.  As to how long this downturn will last, no one knows at the moment. Social dancing is our ‘lifeline’ of our dance community, to any dance studio or community.

In looking for ways to uplift our dance community, and other dance communities; as well as support them each other while engaging our family and friends in a fun activity, the Flying Dance Community would like to invite you to our 1st “Salsa Video Dance Competition”.

– Everyone is welcome to participate multiple ways, competing, cheering for your friends, or supporting your local dance studio
– Competitors: all ages
– All entries are via video (respecting social isolations guidelines)
– The dance style for this competition: Salsa only
– There is a Pro and Amateur division.
– There will be prizes

Dancers, their families and friends; and everyone who loves Latin Dancing can participate by helping vote for the people’s choice award.  You can also help by donating in support of the dance communities participating in this fundraiser through GOFUNDME.

 

 

The money raised will go to supporting the financial health of the dance communities participating in this competition.  A small portion will go to the competitors and a smaller portion to expenses for this venture.  A list of the dance studios/communities is below.

FDComm has been part of our local dance scene since 2004.  We have been lucky to play a part in many people’s life journeys over the many many years.  We hope with your support, either competing or donating, we will see you on the other side of this crisis.  Be well, stay safe, and see you soon on the dance floor!
