Get your team together and put on your dancin’ shoes for a fantastic day of FUN-draising! All proceeds will go towards our #EverettsLift Project. Contact us to sign your team up today and receive your pledges and participants package. This Dance-a-thon is very similar to a walk-a-thon; Participants join teams (or dance as individuals) and raise money by dancing. Dance lessons, social dancing, contests, prizes and more will be enjoyed throughout the day. This event is open to all who want to participate – new beginners through advanced and no experience necessary! Each team member is required to raise a minimum of $25 in pledges to participate – Some of the prizes that will be awarded to the Team with the Most Money Raised in Pledges, Best Team Spirit, Best Social Media Splash and Most Songs Danced!
A schedule of dances and instructors will be posted in advance of the event, we are working on having a wide variety of different dances to participate in, with several different instructors including past THK Choreographer, Laura Campbell! Food and beverages will be available to purchase throughout the event.
Where is the money going?
Our Town Hall Kids programming is dedicated to making our building accessible for all. One part of our building is currently not accessible, and that is the stage. We have acquired a wheelchair lift already with money raised so far, but there is still a VERY long way to go. Our building is a designated heritage site, which means there is a lot of red tape to make any physical changes to its state. We will need engineers and contractors to get this off the ground, and then maintenance costs over the years to keep it running. This campaigns goal is to raise $50,000 – thank you so much for helping us get there!
Everett Nichol is 12 years old and has been a member of Town Hall Kids for three years. He is kind, funny, enthusiastic, smart, loves theatre; and he happens to be in a wheelchair. This campaign is for you Everett – and your right to be on our stage and get on our stage just as easily as any other Town Hall Kid.
We also believe that by committing to this project we are saying to our community and to other young people like Everett, that our building and programming is a safe, accessible space to be who you are.
