The Baltimore Dance Crews Project has announced a $25k Matching Grant Challenge

The Baltimore Dance Crews Project has accepted the challenge! Help us raise $25,000 by June 2, 2017 and the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation will match your contribution. We are #MOVINGTOGETHER. Move with us!

4.5.17 – Our Match Challenge officially launched with an announcement at our Spring Opener hosted at Open Works Baltimore.

We seek to surround every student with a community of positive influencers who include their peers, college students, young professionals, and their families. A community that fosters healthy minds and bodies and develops relationships that help our students choose their own trajectory.

Our Saturday program serves 53 Baltimore City students from grades 5 through 12. The program has grown to three youth teams and a young professionals dance company. Students receive training in dance, perform throughout the East Coast (and internationally), and develop skills to lead hip-hop dance workshops and clubs at schools across Baltimore. How your contribution helps?

$25 – Supports a student for one month of dance workshops
$150 – Provides a school a high quality dance workshop
$200 – Supports a dance team member for one season
$700 – Helps two students perform internationally
$2500 – Supports a teaching artist for 8-week program
$5000 – Provides an end of season concert
