Thank you to Lisa for being the first to contribute!
We just need FIVE more generous supporters to donate $50 or TEN more generous supporters to donate just $25 to meet this goal by Saturday, May 17th.
Will you be the next one we recognize?
This year participant groups performing at the Baltimore Dance Crews Project's 2nd Annual Urban Dance Concert are asked to partner with a local non-profit organization and assist in online charitable fundraising. There are 11 amazing teams performing at this year's show. As a united dance community our overall goal is to raise $2500 for local charities.
Culture Shock DC (CSDC), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization itself, has selected to raise money to benefit its youth dance troupes.
Culture Shock's DC's mission is to dedicate itself to innovative performance, artist development, and community enrichment. We work with our youth troupes to fulfill each aspect of this mission as weil as live up to the Culture Shock motto, "We are a troup of individuals who through the power of music and dance cultivate self-worth, dignity, and respect for all people."
The funds raised in this campaign will help our youth troupes travel to perform and inspire other young dancers and even adults with their incredible talent and artistry. Our youth groups include Future Shock (ages 17 and under), Mighty Shock (ages 13 and under), and our youngest group, Mini Shock (ages 5 and under). Below you can learn so much more about each youth dance troupe.
Our apprentice troupe provides those ages 17 and under with substantial experience studying and performing urban dance forms. Culture Shock DC dance troupe members often mentor these teen dancers. The family environment fosters teamwork, respect, and positive self-expression. Future Shock dancers are required to maintain satisfactory grade-point averages and participate regularly in local community events. Their performances often draw large, diverse audiences and are applauded for their high level of technical and artistic excellence.
A training troupe for dancers ages 13 years and under, Mighty Shock builds a solid Hip Hop dance foundation. Troupe members learn challenging routines and grow as individuals working toward a common goal of performing great routines at various community events and showcases. The teamwork and confidence that are displayed by these young dancers inspire youth and adults alike.
Mini Shock dancers show that you are never too young to be innovative and learn to work hard. These troupes are a fun way for children 5 years and under to grow through Hip Hop dance and be exposed to the core values of the Hip Hop community, including self-worth and respect for others.
By May 17th we hope to raise $300 for these amazing young individuals. WE CAN DO IT! Thank you for your generousity.
