A Stage For The Little Dancers

Turn Your Donation Into Children's Smiles!
(Read below to see how we thank you for your donation.)

Here at the Salsa With Silvia Dance Studio's our main goal is TO GIVE TO THE COMMUNITY! The Owner and its team work hard to provide the best environment for even the youngest of dancers to learn dance and thrive.

The Salsa With Silvia Dance Studio first started in the basement of the Owner's house.  Because of Silvia's passion for dance and belief that dance makes people happy both physically and mentally, the classes grew fast and the kids program quickly gained a large following in the community.

Within just a few years the Studio needed to expand and move into a larger space. Salsa With Silvia's desire to contribute to the community helped the Owner build a strong application based on which the Studio  received a government grant to create a beautiful space from scratch and turn it into a state-of-the art facility where kids learn how to dance from as little as 6 months old.

Our studio is a firm believer in the power of giving. We consistently donate to local schools and businesses, we raise money for charity, disaster relief and personal tragedies, we teach and perform for community events, elderly homes and schools. We will continue giving the joy of dance by establishing a scholarship program for performing kids.

YOUR FUNDING WILL GO TOWARDS PURCHASING A FOLDING RAISED STAGE FOR OUR YOUNGEST PERFORMERS. HERE IS WHY:

While we continue giving to the community, we find ourselves in a dilemma when it comes to our very popular semester recitals. We have a beautiful studio but during recitals it is hard for parents to see their little ones perform because we don't have a raised stage.

Parents ask why don't we rent another venue for recitals. After a simple calculation, we determine that if we rent another venue and add the cost of the rental to the recital tickets, families would have to pay a minimum of $50 per recital ticket. BY HAVING OUR OWN STAGE AND KEEPING RECITALS IN OUR BEAUTIFUL VENUE, THE COST PER RECITAL TICKETS WILL STAY BETWEEN $12 - $15.

We need Your help!

We are asking for your donation to help our families fully enjoy their little dancers perform.

HOW A RAISED STAGE IMPROVES THE KIDS EXPERIENCE DURING A PERFORMANCE:

We hope that you will make a small donation to help our little dancers feel important and satisfied with their hard work during the semester. When they dance on a stage, they really enjoy the feeling of dancing like a real super star. It greatly benefits their self-esteem and teaches them how to perform in front of large audiences.

BENEFITS FOR OUR PERFORMING KIDS AND THEIR FAMILIES:

- We will raise the level on which the kids perform for a better viewing experience.

- We will continue to keep the ticket cost low by keeping the performances in our space and not renting an expensive venue.

- We will keep recitals at our beautiful fully equipped space where the kids will relax and perform their best in their own home Studio.
