3SB Short SummaryWe are 3rd Street Beat: Edmonton's first and longest standing all hip hop studio. We started in 2001 to offer the best possible dance classes for youth and get out there as performers in the community. In 12 years, we have created dance competitions, benefit dance concerts, school programs, and have helped many thousands of young talented dancers reach their goals and help other do the same.
We want to create a place for everyone to feel right at home, and in the middle of the action so you don't miss a thing!
What We Need & What You Get
For this project, we have looked into estimates, all of which are nearing $100 000; factoring in design, contracting and renovations. We are already looking into several options to raise this money from fundraising events, sponsorship, investors, loans as well as personal monetary injections to make this happen. However, even with this in place, we cannot reach the projected $100 000 needed to complete the center; falling short by an estimated $20 000. This is why we are launching this online fundraiser: to enlist the help from our loyal 3sb supporters to make this goal come to fruition. There are many fundraising options and price points in which you can get pledge your support and several fun perks to enjoy for your contribution to the cause.
The perks for your support can include anything from DVD's of the 3SB year end show and "Building The Future Today" T-shirts, to having your name or company name on our Walk of Fame at the entrance of the center and even having one of the studios named after you/your company!
WHY A COMMUNITY PERFORMING ARTS CENTER?
Your contribution to this center makes a world of a difference and truly helps create the right atmosphere and environment to maximize the experience of both the students and parents.
Creating the center isn't just about having another studio space for our dancers to rehearse. It isn't just about having our name on a building. Its significance extends far beyond dance classes and bettering the hip hop community. This center is a place where a person can find their identity, enrich their character through confidence, and build leadership. Through Leadership, we are creating better people who will go out into the world and affect positive change on all those around them. They will develop the confidence and social skills necessary to cultivate powerful relationships and nurture their longing for something greater than themselves. This is what the new 3SB Community Performing Arts Center truly stands for and aims to achieve: building leaders in our community through performing arts.
Other Ways You Can HelpWe understand that not everyone can put money into a project, but there are still many ways you can be involved in helping make this center become a reality in Edmonton. A movement like this requires mass awareness and buzz on a daily basis to ensure that everyone hears about it and knows its importance for our city. By simply sharing the fundraising video on Facebook or sending it by e-mail, tweet about it or simply posting and talking about it you make it possible for us to reach our goal.
