This is what it's all about.

We are a non-profit organization that emerged in January 2022 with the support of the former and internationally recognized dancer Cinthia Labaronne, to professionally instruct and train new dancers.

Our focus is to keep young people studying a formal career and offer them the possibility of being professional dancers at the same time. In this way, young people will have better opportunities in the future.

My project is special because ...

i. Offer another possibility for young people and children to study classical dance without neglecting formal studies. The main reason for this is to address the problems that occur today where professional schools require 100% dedication, and this means that those dancers who were not selected by dance companies must return to formal studies again. (High schools, technical schools, or universities).

ii. Train high-performance dancers so that they can compete at an international level. This implies physical, educational, and psychological training to meet the requirements that arise in the world of dance. For this reason, the classes are taught in English/German/French to offer internationality to the dancers.

iii. Offer the possibility of professional training to adults. Currently, for this public, only hobby courses are offered, and basic knowledge is provided, but the world of dance belongs to anyone who has the desire to dance, regardless of age, body, and other factors.

This is what I need backing for.

The money collected through the wemakeit campaign will be used to equip the school with the professional ballet floor with a special amortization system that will reduce the pressure on the children’s backbone and prevents joint injuries. The cost of the floor is CHF 30.000.
