Ever wanted to make a difference? Ever want to give back to your friends, peers in need?
Well guess what… Just by supporting dance in your community, you’re ALREADY giving back. Here’s how:
Because you support dance, you show the powers that be how important it is to have a thriving arts community. Because you experience dance activities in Toronto and across Canada, our culture continues to grow creatively. How we communicate with each other, how we de-stress, how we choose to spend our dollars and what we talk about around the water cooler is often inspired by dance and the arts.
Dance has purpose! And has no prejudice. Art always inspires new ideas, creates movements, forces us to think bigger and teaches us to embrace the differences and uniqueness of all people.
Because you dance, you not only express your own inner passions and reward your body, but you also show a mutual respect for others who share in passion. Offering time, aid or resources when needed, and recognizing the passions and achievements of others is what keeps a community strong.
(Just a few ways BDX gave back to the community: Free dance classes for Thanksgiving Food Drive; Hip Hop for Haiti; Family Fitness classes and talks at deserving elementary schools; plus daily dance classes for all adults to enjoy.)
An important note to be aware of: What you contribute here, affects more than you see. Your community is the world! What you do in this city can actually affect the lives of others around the globe.
Making a difference is easier than you think. So will you share the love this holiday? Will you help grow a wonderful world? Choose an experience that enhances your life and your community.
Safe and Happy Holidays everywhere!
