Big dreams of expansion have DiLi – Dream it, Live it moving into a more permanent location in 2019.
From its humble beginnings in church and community halls, DiLi now has the opportunity for a permanent home base.
Owner and principal teacher, Sally Prendergast said this is an exciting project but it needs community support.
“The new premises needs a safe dance studio floor installed. The flooring has to have a shock absorption value of at least 53%,” Ms Prendergast said.
“This is expensive to create and so we are launching a crowdfunding campaign on Thursday February 14 to raise funds.”
“The goal is $39k and even though this feels like a large figure, it comes down to 400 generous individuals each giving $100.”
DiLi’s new premises will be utilised to meet the needs of the Mount Isa community and to create opportunities to reach further into the Northern Outback region.
Ms Prendergast believes in creating an environment that is inclusive, nurturing and fun whilst also incorporating fundamental life skills for each of her students.
“I want to create a home away from home for my students and I’m passionate about creating a place where students can feel good about themselves.
“Teaching dance is a gift and I’m so lucky to do something I love, however what I really want for my students is for them to understand how valuable they are. I want to teach them how to believe in themselves, love themselves and to see the unlimited potential that lies before them,” she said.
The Crowdfunding campaign kicks off on Valentine’s Day so show some love by supporting this project:
Ms Prendergast said Corporate Partnerships are available and she is contactable at firstname.lastname@example.org or like the DiLi Facebook Page to stay up to date.
The local dance school prides itself on customer service and in 2018 was recognised at the Northern Outback Business Awards winning the Service Excellence and Business Growth Awards.
Ms Prendergast was also proud to be awarded the Customer Service Hero Award for the Skilled Sector.
The dance school offers quality dance and movement classes to children and adults in the Northern Outback Region of Queensland.
