Attracting sponsorship, donations, volunteers or funding for a ballet development project in Africa is challenging and time consuming.
We are a loose collective of ballet enthusiasts based in The Gambia in West Africa. We started out as a social group that used to meet to discuss ballet and to swap and watch DVDs and we have gained momentum to the extent that we now run ballet awareness workshops at a number of women’s groups, local schools and community centres.
We are attracting young and enthusiastic ballet students from all levels of society and survive on donations and local fundraising events.
We now plan to raise funding to develop things further.
With dedication, a great team effort, planning and strategy, our fund raisers are raising money to support our ballet, dance and community development projects across Gambia.
Play a part in our Gambian ballet and dance development projects: We are happy to receive volunteers, sponsorship, funding or donations of anything involving ballet, dance and the performing arts
In Gambia, every little helps, be it old ballet shoes, ballet pumps, costumes, ballet training equipment, manuals, annuals, books, CD’s, DVD’s and absolutely anything else in any way related with ballet and dance.
