Project Description

Fit4Dance is dedicated to bringing quality and affordable dance and fitness instruction to women and children in Brooklyn. We offer a comfortable space where women can have fun, learn to dance, improve their fitness and health, meet new people, explore other cultures, and freely express themselves. Laci established Fit4Dance to inspire and motivate women to take control of their health and have a blast doing it! 

Laci decided to open her business in Crown Heights for three reasons. The first reason is to encourage African-American women and children to take charge of their health through exercise.  The second is to unify varied groups of people through the common love of dance as the community diversifies.  The third and debatably most essential reason is to provide a safe haven for children to have fun, be active, and express themselves in a loving, welcoming environment. 

Fit4Dance will continue to have a measurable impact on women and children in Brooklyn.  We will help women meet their fitness goals while also helping them relieve stress and gain a more positive outlook on life.  We aim to establish quality children's dance programs that will increase children's flexibility, physical strength, and stamina while also improving their social and communication skills,  By offering dance fitness classes in a caring, supportive  atmosphere, the community will begin to look at fitness as a pleasant and consistent part of their lifestyle. 

FIt4Dance is seeking funding to support us during these unprecedented times. Our studio was forced to close temporarily; however, we were removed from all of the Phases in the Reopening Plan for New York City. Because of the uncertainty of COVID-19, we are unsure when we will be able to return to our beautiful studio which many have named a community staple. We are fortunate to have moved many of our classes to a virtual platform, but we are not able to sustain the business with this being the only source of revenue.  Unfortunately, we also are unable to offer all of the classes that we had available at our physical location. Funding will support the day-to-day expenses. Rent, salaries, bills, insurance, amongst other things must be paid. Adjusting to an online platform and planning for the future to ensure sustainability also costs.

We have an incredible group of instructors and supporters that are dedicated to the mission of Fit4Dance and want to see the community flourish. We appreciate you for donating to our organization and ensuring that we are able to withstand the storm. Things may look different for us in the coming months and years, but we are ready to do whatever it takes to survive.
