Dear Friends of Inspiración!
I wanted to let you all know about our Fall Fundraising Campaign.
When we began Inspiración we had a dream to use Latin dance performance as a way to develop youth, enrich communities and spread the art of Latin dance. We have worked hard to fulfill that mission:
- In 2013-2014 we gave 30+ hours of free dance training at Senn High School, plus free costumes for their Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 Dance Concerts. And plans are already underway for two intensives this year!
- Provided free tickets to Senn students and their parents to the Inspiracíón 2014 Gala.
- In 2013-2014 we donated over 30 hours of free dance instruction at Loyola University. And this year we’ve added a free open class and free choreography group.
- This year we expanded our youth programming to Lane Tech, where we provide a low-cost choreography class. We have also found them a free venue in downtown Chicago where they can perform and hold a fundraiser.
- Our adult team has added several new members. All of them have trained hard to become stronger dancers and they have already given much of their time to our youth programming. In other words, their training and experience is already becoming an asset to the community.

Right now we are trying to raise funds to pay for costumes for our youth teams and to help the adult professional train and perform at the San Francisco Salsa Congress. You could really help us continue our mission by supporting our campaign. Your donation would be tax deductible and it would be a big help to us. You hear so much in the news about the tough conditions for young people Chicago. At Inspiración we are using our passion for Latin Dance to provide a positive means of expression for young people in Chicago.
