We are very grateful to everyone who have contributed to support our online classes.
These times are challenging for everyone, but here we also have an opportunity to reimagine the future.
Therefore we are implementing measures and protocols that are a result of thorough and inclusive consultations, that we fully stand behind them and that we would like to see implemented in other arts organisations in the future.
For those reasons, we have decided to make this document so that our participants, teachers, and colleagues working behind the scenes understand how these generous contributions are being distributed.
We want to highlight 2 things:
1. This activity is dependent on the platforms we are using for its exposure (mailchimp, zoom, website) and on the 3 people of the TWV team : Jorge, Mel and Fanny (social media, newsletter, producing, finances, schedule management, teachers and participants liaison). We are currently working on funding applications to support the online classes but don’t have any other source of income apart from those contributions just yet.
2. We want to keep supporting fantastic teachers with less experience or currently building up their audiences. We also want to acknowledge the experience of some other teachers. We are therefore proposing a new system commencing on 27h of April.
The contributions are reviewed every week (Monday-Sunday).
You can find the latest reports of contributions here:

We are continuing to hold discussions within the team as well as with the teachers involved in the process, we are also incurring new expenses such as for mailchimp. Since April 27th, we have been distributing the donations as follows:
Every hour of teaching starts with the value of “1”. This value per class can be a little enhanced by the age and experience of the teacher.
Once again, thank you so much for your input as a participant, teacher or team member of Towards Vivencia: this could never happen without all of you. We will keep dancing no matter what. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to contact Fanny at email@example.com.
