Puerto Rico Needs Our Help!
Join us for an evening of dance to benefit families in need
Food is running out on our island and despite what you might hear on the news, our people aren’t getting the help they need. Friends and family of the studio, as well as people we have never met, have shared horror stories of thirst and hunger with us, and we refuse to stand by when we have a community here that is ready to step up.
We have already gathered quite a few canned goods, with more coming, and in each box there is enough to make about 5 meals for a family of 3. The money generously donated is being used to pay for shipping and supplies to help Puerto Ricans survive this disaster. We want to keep this going, and you can help!
Where does my money go?
For shipping and supplies to send. Nothing else. No bureocracy, no overhead (except what Eventbrite takes out--you can pay cash in the studio for ALL your funds to go to this cause). Even our wonderful instructors are volunteering their time without pay--this is a Group Effort!
Who is getting supplies?
Anyone that sends our studio a working address in Puerto Rico--no questions asked, no waitlist, no delays.
Our facebook page will be updating the community on the usage of all funds, so you can see where your money is going. Please join us on social media and share it with anyone with family in Puerto Rico--we will do our best to distribute everything. (But be patient--there are only two of us taking donations, packaging, and sending everything.)

How much is each class?
The minimum donation to participate in each half hour class is $10, or $55 for all three hours.
Can I donate without taking classes?
YES! We have set up a button for this purpose. We suggest cash donations at the studio to avoid Eventbrite fees.
