Wicked Dance Community Scholarship Fund
Our Scholarship fund is designed to enrich the community by providing free or half paid dance classes for children form low income families. Wicked Dance Works believes that dance should be accessible to all, through fund raising we hope to provide passionate and talented young children the chance to come and explore their creativity in our state of the art studios learning from the best the industry has to offer.
It is a known fact that being involved in some sort a recreational activity whilst growing up can have a very positive impact on how we approach our education and our outlook on life. Dance & Sport teach us a range of physical, mental and life skills that we can use throughout our whole adult lives. As well as tackling the issues of obesity it can give any participant confidence, teach respect, discipline it helps forge long lasting relationships, teaches the importance of team work, the list of benefits is truly endless.
This fund has been set up out of my passion for community dance and the impact it has had on my life as well as the people around me. Every child matters and every child deserves the chance to dance, be creative, make new friends, grow personally, gain confidence and stay active in a non-judgmental environment.
