Dance, multiculturalism and new friends
One World One Passion (OWOP) is DanceDaily´s social charity project. Our aim is to arrange free dance classes and donate dancewear to children. We encourage children from different families and cultural backgrounds to take part in our Multicultural dance classes at schools and reception centers. With this approach we would like to offer children a way to integrate themselves into the society and make new friends.
DanceDaily is a part of Tampere City HIP (Harrastava IltaPäivä) program that gives fundings to arrange afternoon classes at schools. DanceDaily arranges weekly Multicultural HIP dance classes at several schools in Tampere. Multicultural HIP-dance classes are especially arranged with integration and social aspects in mind. We hope to help children to integrate, increase self-esteem and make new friends via dance. Any special dancewear needed at the dance classes or in performances will be donated to children by DanceDaily.
DanceDaily arranges weekly dance classes in Kauppi reception center in Tampere in collaboration with WAU Ry (https://www.wau-ry.fi/). Weekly dance classes are offered in autumn 2018 also for the children in Heikinharju reception center in Oulu. We are extremely happy to offer the children in the reception centers a possibility to get familiar with the new culture and environment via dance. DanceDaily donates dancewear to the children in the classes. The dancewear is received via DanceDaily recycling project or new DanceDaily dancewear donated from DanceDaily´s online store. Multicultural dance classes are arranged also in several schools in Vantaa in collaboration with WAU Ry.
We're actively reaching out for possibilities to offer dance classes to children in cooperation with schools, dancing schools and funding organizations. Our plan now is to expand the dance classes at schools to several cities in Finland and Europe. Do you have ideas on how to help children or would you like to participate OWOP-project?
