PLEASE TAKE PART IN OUR DANCE-A-THON TO RAISE FUNDS FOR OUR DANCERS
We are hosting a dance-a-thon to help raise a fund for costumes, excursions and events for FYI Dance Club members. As events and performance opportunities arise (such as the ‘I am Street’ Hip hop Championships held on 12th February 2011), I would like to be able to take students to participate or watch. However the cost of bus hire/costumes/entrance fee etc usually prevents me from doing so (not wishing to force extra costs on parents). Therefore it is my aim to create a fund from which we can draw from when such events arise. It is my aim to open up these events to all students and ‘pick permission slips out of a hat’ to bring a group to these type of events. We could also use the funds to buy new show costumes (can cost hundreds for just one class) or enter competitions. I also feel an event like this can be great fun for students and parents alike, raising team and community spirit. I would to stress that students do not have to participate and an alternative (such as an €5 entrance fee for example) could be arranged for those who wish to participate but not get sponsored. Refreshments and spot prizes will take place during the day to create a fun and enjoyable atmosphere. This event will also create an opportunity for our 10 Supertroop dancers to raise funds for their Twinning trip to Montigny. (Full details of our twinning events can be found in the blog section of fyidanclub.com). I will post the total amount raised and how it is spent on the FYI Dance Club website.
When: Sunday 13th March, 12pm-6pm
Details: Students are to be sponsored to participate in as many hours as possible (max 6 hours). There will be 10 teams (headed by each member of the Montigny dancers) and each team will learn a new short dance sequence each hour which will then be danced on rotation for a total of 2 minutes per group until the hour is completed (ie. 10 groups @ 2minutes each=20 minutes; repeated 3 times).
Prizes: There will be a raffle for all students who take part for free classes for term 4(for as many classes as they like). There will also be goodie bags for all students who participate.
Any further questions, queries, suggestions or feedback please contact me (Zoe) at firstname.lastname@example.org or 086 173 82 72
I WISH TO THANK, IN ADVANCE, ALL THOSE WHO PARTICIPATE AND SPONSOR!
