The #FundFreelanceDance #FreeClass Series
With lockdown restrictions still in place nationally, and Freelance Dancers finding safe studio access near impossible, the #FundFreelanceDance initiative has responded directly by shifting its fundraising efforts towards raising smaller amounts to cover the costs of a model where a paid freelance teacher provides class to an unlimited number of participants from home via ZOOM.
Every £75 raised will cover a single teaching post for a free professional class provided as a service to any and all dancers wishing to take part.
The #FreeClass series has already serviced over 1122 participants and counting, and created 36 paid teaching positions across 54 Classes.
Class is an essential part of any dancer's 'movement diet' and we cannot underestimate the positive impact an idea like this can have on the wider dance conversation during this challenging period.
Help these dance artists in returning to full fitness so they can be ready to be dancing again on a stage near you.
Thank you for supporting #FundFreelanceDance.
In Memory of Clive Burton
Clive Burton brought dance and, in particular, ballet, his love of the art form, the performers and the sheer exuberance of movement to his many friends and to a wider audience through his work as Dance Editor of Ritz Magazine and as a contributor for The Dancing Times.
Clive served on the Laurence Olivier Awards dance panel and was responsible for the UK marketing and PR support programme for Cuban superstar, Jose Manuel Carreno.
For the final years of his all too short life, Clive was an active and committed reviewer for the Theatre World website.
We, his many friends, could think of no better way to commemorate his death than to support young dancers and we wish you all survival and success in a better world tomorrow.
