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, as well as support them each other while engaging our family and friends in a fun activity, the FDComm has tried several different projects all thankful to our great volunteers.
1. Video Dance Competition (online)
2. Lunch Break Dance Workout (online) (paused for the summer)
3. Dance Chats with #FNSF (online) (paused for the summer)
4. Moonlight Dancing : July 23rd to August 27th (while adhering to the social distance guidelines)
We are very grateful to the support we have received so far from our dance community, but looking forward, we know another lockdown will be coming soon, most probably in the fall. Because of that, we started a GoFundme page to help the FDComm dance space available for us when this crisis is over.
Dancers, their families, and friends; and everyone who loves Latin Dancing can participate by donating in support of our dance community. The money raised will go to supporting the financial health of the dance communities participating in this competition.
We hope you will help us get everyone up and moving, up and dancing regardless of your age. Support us by either donating or sharing the fundraiser.
And lastly, we hope to see you soon on the dance floor! Check out the Moonlight Dancing Event on Facebook, with all the detail regarding social distancing.
