Dance studios are truly altruistic in nature. I love seeing dancers and studios participating in charity events, fundraisers, benefit performances, and more. Our willingness to give truly makes a difference, and I think it one of the most endearing facets of our industry.
We have found Classes For A Cause to be a very successful method for raising funds for varying charities. With this method, a themed class is offered for our students/parents. The event is a fun class and that is donation based to the charity of choice. We have offered Classes For A Cause for a variety of fundraisers– from raising money for the American Red Cross after the Haitian Earthquake to raising money for a team for the Lupus Foundation Walk. It is so rewarding to see the studio uniting for a great cause!
How does your studio effectively raise funds for charitable causes? We would love to hear what works for you.
