Help ABC Dance Academy Stay Strong during COVID-19

Hello Everyone!

At ABC Dance Academy, we understand that current times are trying times. The health and safety of our dance community are of utmost importance, but we also understand how difficult it can be to shelter at home. To break up the restlessness and continue love and passion for dance, we would like to offer free online classes via the Zoom app for the month of April!

Many of our families cannot afford classes due to recent circumstances whether it’s financial or health reasons, but we feel that they deserve the right to dance during these troubling times. ABC Dance Academy has already had to pay the rent for the month of April, with no relief from the landlord. Employer's Quarterly Federal Tax Return and Illinois Monthly Withholding taxes are also due in April with no extension being offered. 

We are applying for all available loans and grants that could cover payroll, rent, and, utilities if received, however; there are additional funds needed to cover taxes, music license, worker's compensation monthly fees, accountant fees, credit cards processing fees, cleaning supplies, maintenance, costumes, the cost for web hosting, and marketing. 

As a small business owner, I am dedicated to ensuring that my employees can receive their paychecks, and ABC Dance instructors are willing to work to give our dance families the best experience possible during these hard times!

We’re sure it has been just as hard not seeing your children dance and be active just as it’s been difficult on us not being able to work with our dedicated dancers. If anyone can and is willing to donate or share this post along with their forms of social media it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your efforts and thank you for taking the time to read this message. 

And thank you GoFundMe for #SmallBusinessRelief!

Wishing everyone health and safety!
