Hi Everyone – this email is in support of one of our folk family, Anne Leahy and her son Sam – Anne & Sam and her late husband John were quite involved in the Singing Shed – way back then!!
To support this dream of performing on the international stage, Bust a Move Dance have launched the crowd-funding campaign ‘Dancing Our Way to LA’ through the online platform Start Some Good, to bring 30 dancers (with and without disabilities) to LA to perform and share our message of inclusion.Crowd funding allows people who want to make change, to share their vision and project on an online platform (in this case Start Some Good) in the hopes that people will make monetary donations to support their cause. The catch? If they don’t hit their minimum tipping point, they won’t get a cent of the money pledged!
Dancing Our Way to LA is a project directed towards supporting young people with disabilities in achieving their goals, whatever they may be – in this case – to perform on the world stage.
Perceptions of people with a disability greatly affect their inclusion in their communities and their capacity to achieve basic goals. But people with disability have the same right to achieve their personal goals and ambitions as the rest of the community and achieve the fullest possible quality of life.
I would love for you to check out their project and contribute in some way at:
