Tower Hamlets has lots of park space and on nice days when it' not raining , we all wish we were out in the sun rather than inside a gym. Our dance studios and programs have suffered greatly during the covid era , and many do not feel safe to return to the studio. Let's create a summer dance program running on dry warm days to be open and inclusive outside in the park with a website to be updated daily . To run at least 1 week requirements- Park permissions required , safety assessment needed . Space - perhaps Victoria Park or the park square opposite meds on Burdett Rd free & inclusive for all Teacher payments based on 5 hour days 10-11pm 12-2pm 6.30-8.30pm £250 x7 days = £1750 Advertising & marketing budget = £500- Management of project = £700 Insurances - £1000 Sound system - £200- Dance flooring portable - £1000 lighting- 150 Fans - £100 park licence £700 - £100 a day budget required -£6,100

What we'll deliver:

  • Get permissions from the council & do a risk assessment
  • Obtain indemnity insurance for the teachers
  • Put together a program and website where you can see whats on
  • Update website and classes weather pending
  • vet and obtain teachers for the classes
  • construct and take down the dance floor & bring sound and lighting
  • monitor all the classes
  • free tickets online to monitor numbers
  • provide feedback to the council and space hive

Why it's a great idea:

Brings together community Helps people get fit and enjoy our wonderful park Creates Jobs for community based teachers Brings positive outlook and great use of park space Helps those of every age and ability get involved in the community

Steps to get it done:

  • parks licence and permissions
  • risk assessment
  • book outside dance floor hire
  • hire teachers and performers
  • create web page
  • advertise and promote
  • allow booking depending on dance floor space and government regulations
  • execute event

Dancers need a dance floor , and with very little space available outside and absolutely no space available with proper flooring , many have missed their favourite activity and online classes have not quite hit the mark for many who already look at their computers all day . To safely dance a proper dance floor is essential as pivoting on grass can cause serious injuries especially to knees and ankles .
