We are a non-for-profit, do you do discounts or pro bono work?

Yes, we want to support talents globally and we understand that small dance companies and charities might not have the financial means to pay the full price.

For international small companies, we have added special dates in the calendar.

When Cindy is visiting a city / country, she can accept additional bookings, which allows you to only pay for her artistic fee, exclusive of flight /transport and/or accommodation / per diems.

So many students are hungry to train with international guest teachers but flights / accommodation might be expensive costs. Check the calendar, we might be visiting your city during the year.

We also offer a limited amount of days /hours of pro bono work each year for charities. When possible, we happily accept to deliver our services free of charge. For example: fundraising events for a good cause.

Contact us and we’d be happy to discuss this further.

When contacting us for discounts or pro bono work, we ask organisations to:

  • demonstrate their event will benefit others and make a difference in the world in some way, shape or form
  • submit prove that they don’t have the financial means to pay for the full price of the services offered

* We condemn and disapprove of businesses who are taking advantage of artists. Our production company has a strict policy in regards to artists’ fees, we highly value artists’ salaries and expertise.

* While we want to make a global impact and make this world a better world, unfortunately we can not help every good cause at a discounted price. We make a limited amount of days and hours available each year to support causes we believe in, and warmly accept applications. Not all will be successful.

Participants must be proficient in their own field. For example, students must be at ease with learning a choreographed sequence as well as with improvisation / freestyle. Participants must have an open mind, a hunger for exploration and enjoy creative challenges.

Which dance styles are covered in the workshops and retreats?

Cindy has a background in Dancehall, Hiphop and Krump. She also fell in love with Afrobeats and Salsa. Her training as a performer lead her to also gain an understanding of Contemporary Dance, House and even Aerial (Bungee).

While she doesn’t teach dance technique classes anymore, her workshops are very rooted in dance and the exploration of movement.

During the Creativity Retreats, Cindy will teach and refer to some Dancehall / Hiphop / Krump moves. But the aim of the retreats are to leave a lot of freedom for participants to find their own creative voice.

The workshops for pro’s and dance storytelling sessions are based on the techniques used in storytelling. Participants won’t learn a specific dance technique. Each student can use their own expertise and movement quality to explore storytelling and comedy and character work during the workshop.
