Bellagio Dance Studios at The Spearhead Trust
‘Without BDS, my children wouldn’t have anything to focus on.’
The Spearhead Trust at Bells Farmhouse was started in 2009 with the purpose of serving its local community.
Who are The Spearhead Trust?
The Spearhead Trust has a focus on addressing the needs and social issues within the community. The Spearhead Trust is solely volunteer-led, and have a pioneering approach to community engagement by offering a range of projects at Bells Farmhouse for the local residents of all ages to be able to participate in. One of the projects operated from the Farmhouse is Bellagio Dance Studios – a dance group that has been operating for 18 months, and engages with children aged between 3-15 years old within the local community. Currently, around 100 children attend the dance group, with classes taking place five times per week. To ensure that as many local children as possible can afford to attend the dance classes, only a very small class fee is charged, with many dance teachers volunteering their time also.
If successful, what will you use your LoveBrum funding for?
The money will be spent on supporting the growing needs of Bellagio Dance Studios, and helping to make the Hall where the Studio holds their classes fit for purpose. The Dance Studio would like to purchase a professional rollout dance mat floor so that the students can do more tap lessons without the Hall floor being ruined! Bellagio Dance Studios would also like to purchase Blinds for the Hall’s windows and doors to help maintain the privacy of the children whilst in class, and finally, they would like to install mirrors on the walls to help teach the students about positioning during classes, and to help improve dance technique.
