Born to dance "Give youth a chance" Movie Networking / Fundraiser!
Updated: Oct 26, 2021
"BORN TO DANCE" is choreographed by world champion hip-hop dancer, Kiwi, Parris Goebel. The story is a classic coming-of-age story with a pulsing soundtrack and awesome dance scenes from some of the world’s best hip-hop dancers about Tu, a young man caught between who he is, who he wants to be and what others expect of him…’ – Dionne Christian, HOS
Who loves a good dance movie? WE DO! Who loves fun ways to expand network and their contacts list beyond business card exchanges and ‘So…What do you do?’ WE DO! Who’d love to have some of the cast members from the BORN TO DANCE perform a dance piece especially for US? WE WOULD!
The people of the BRIDGE THE GAP PROJECT in association with CLARE MCCALL for FRIENDS OF NEPAL are holding OUR FIRST MINI EVENT to raise funds to help us dress disadvantaged teens. We also know experiences are everything in memory-linking, so we’re fundraising to create experiences to gift to kids like Amanda who had it tough, giving them access to confidence building experiences, basic life skills and our amazing CONFIDENCE-BOOSTING TRANSFORMATIONAL PHOTO SESSIONS & $39 OUTIFT CHALLENGE CONFIDENCE-BOOSTER DAYS.
CLARE will be trekking Everest again in November so she’s on a mission to raise funds for FRIENDS OF NEPAL, as well as she’ll deliver over 100 first aid kits to people truly in need in Nepal.
We’ll do the hard yards, all you need to do is simply turn up and have some fun!
There’re stacks of fabulous prizes and giveaways including merch from our little online shop with the big heart in Lindi Kingi for BTGP ‘Freedom of Choice’ bracelets, Ryan Meta ‘Many Hands Make Light Work’ totes (in black & white), outfits, MOR TLC candles (where $5/candle goes to brain cancer victims) ALL of which are available at our shop Now (please show your support there too, and buy from our shop!).
And if you love what we’re doing and you’re glad you don’t have to do it, then SHOW YOUR SUPPORTNOW & BUY YOUR TICKET NOW! Tickets are only a cheeky $20 bucks (the same amount I went into the world on my own with as an abused, bruised and broken 15 year old!), and you know I can dress a disadvantaged teen for the sale of TWO TICKETS, and ALL proceeds going toward the #BTGP & FRIENDS OF NEPAL. Special thanks to a woman who puts her money where her mouth is and has generously sponsored the theatre: LISA MCCALL of NZ HOME LOANS. You know someone is good at what they do when they’re often overseas from winning various awards. We know it’s because she’s a woman passionate about empowering people on how to take care of their financial futures.
Hoyts Berkeley Cinemas Takapuna 32-34 Anzac Street Takapuna North Shore, Auckland 0622
Arrival, meet & greet & network (if you so choose) at 2PM
Dance will be at 3.00pm then movie!
And for all of you who can’t make the day? What about sponsoring someone less fortunate than you? We’ll happily gift tickets to CYF CAREGIVERS & THEIR YOUNG PEOPLE (just like we did for NZ WEDDINGS show at Fashion Week). Because anyone who has the balls to take care of a young person, especially a troubled teen, who is not ‘their own’ are not in it for the money.
A little bit of YOUR MONEY can do so much.
