The Line Dance Foundation

Providing much needed support for Line Dancers through the generosity of Line Dancers

THE INSPIRATION:

The LDF was set up in February 2007 shortly after we learned of a Line Dance DJ who had developed throat cancer. He lost his voice and consequently the ability to work and earn a living. We soon discovered that Line dancing was the only dance form NOT to have it’s own registered charity. We hoped the Line Dance Foundation would be a stepping stone to establish one and we have always had high hopes for what it can become.

LDF Objectives

As defined in the Articles of Association under the terms of the Companies Act 2006
• To assist in the treatment and care of persons (and their dependants) who wholly or mainly make their living working in the line dancing industry and who are suffering from illness of any description or who are in need of rehabilitation as a result of such illness and by providing financial and other forms of support.
• To relieve poverty or financial hardship among persons who wholly or mainly make their living working in the line dancing industry and their dependants by providing financial and other forms of support.
• For the public benefit to promote the education and training of people in subjects relating to dance and the performing arts in such ways as the Trustees think fit, including by awarding to such persons scholarships, maintenance allowances or grants tenable at any university, college or institutions of higher or further education.

Thank you so much for this kind gesture. Words can't explain and express how I feel. I'm so proud to be part of this line dance family. It's amazing how everybody is actually supporting each other and how much love they have for one another. The LDF helped me to solve emotionally and practically worries with the problems we faced over finances, debts and not being able to dance. To physically and emotional recover for six months and not able to dance is one of the biggest struggles I've ever encountered. The support from the LDF means the world to me, I will support it and support our fellow dance family in need.
