Secure the future of FUNkSTREET during Covid-19

https://www.funkstreetdance.com/ 

As I'm sure many would agree, the arrival of Covid-19 has been a surprise to say the least, but not one of those fun surprises you like getting! Rather, a nasty surprise that has crept up on all of us - business owners, families, individuals - everyone.

When launching a small business you don't ever imagine needing to factor a global pandemic into your business plan - although going forward I certainly will - and you certainly don't imagine that it will affect your business.

As the situation currently stands I have a business that has just turned a year old! A business that I have poured my heart and soul into. A business that I desperately want to succeed - for selfish reasons but also for the good of other people. This last year has been an incredible journey and I can't quite believe how far FUNkSTREET has come in such a small space of time.

For now though, it seems it's in a bit of a forced, temporary, hiatus!

This is where you come in.

First and foremost, I want to use FUNkSTREET to continue spreading joy through dance - now more so than ever, as people are forced to stay inside and give up many of the things that previously brought them joy. I want to encourage people to stay active, to engage in something that has a positive effect on their (and their loved ones’) physical and mental wellbeing. For now, the only way this can happen is online. 

During this unprecedented and strange time, I will be offering a variety of free online dance resources to help keep peoples’ spirits high and to help people stay active. I’m offering them for free because, for me, it isn't about the money. It's about people, it's about dance and it's about using the skills I have to help others.

All I ask is, if you take part in any of my online sessions and enjoy them or gain something from them, that you consider making a donation to help me secure the future of FUNkSTREET, so that when we can hit play again, I'm still here!

Thanks for reading and considering!

Stay safe and keep dancing.
