SGD Mgmnt & Staff
IN THE NEWS- TV
IN THE NEWSPAPER
SGD Dance, Fitness and Event Center has been focusing on growing our membership support in order to keep the business alive.
We were never provided the Government assistance that was "promised" at the beginning of the pandemic, despite applying for it in March 2020. We have worked extremely hard through very creative options the entire pandemic with no break in offerings. We have fought daily to get the promised government funding that we still have yet to receive. The devastation to our business has been completely unfair as we have watched packed malls and big box corporations get rich with no restrictions. Our 17,000 SF facility is plenty large and no different than a retail or grocery store. We did not take a break, we did not sit home and collect a Government payment- quite the opposite actually. We have worked non-stop around the clock to provide choices and options for people to keep moving despite all the challenges with restrictions. Fitness and socializing will always be essential and we will continue to provide those opportunities.
Join us in our effort to keep our facility alive and moving forward with our rebranding and grand opening plans.
HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1.) We have a goal of building up our membership base as fast as possible.
Our membership is only $75/ month and includes:
ALL Dance classes
ALL Fitness classes
ALL Social nights
This is an AMAZING DEAL and if you sign up now, you will get this rate forever. No contracts, month-to-month and cancel at anytime. Your support will HELP US get back on our feet and HELP YOU establish a new routine that's so important for your physical and mental health. A great way to kick off a new routine with much needed movement, happiness and socializing again! Please spread the word to friends that may want to support a shuttered small business that has been fighting the entire pandemic and provides many options to get moving! See more about the membership HERE.
GO FUND ME CAMPAIGN
2.)We have started a Go fund me campaign: Help Save Shawn Gardner Dancing in an attempt to raise funds to recover some of our losses. The goal is large as it's essentially replacing the Government assistance that was never received. We hope one day this will come through and we will continue to apply for additional funding and grants. See the Go fund me video story and page HERE.
The Membership Program is keeping us alive!
Our monthly operating costs are 40K so additional memberships are needed to help keep the facility alive as we are now paying our rent & bills in full.
We would love your support!
Our first Membership goal has been met THANKS TO ALL OF YOU who came together to make it happen! We are not out of the dark yet however and ask that you please continue spreading the word to your friends about the Membership deal. Although our plans are still pending, we are now able to explore future options at the Ballroom and hope to continue forward. A new goal has been set to ensure smooth operations until we can get our private events running fully again. With continued restrictions in our state, this has been an extremely difficult journey. We are truly thankful to all of you who are supporting us through this challenging time. We are still fighting everyday and won't give up trying to save the ballroom and Shawn Gardner Dancing. Please see our HOW CAN I HELP page for additional ways you can support.
Although SGD previously offered 35+ classes a week, our schedule is limited until we can gather enough funding to get going fully again. We are open 7 days a week for classes, social dancing, private rentals, private lessons, private small groups and private events. Contact us if you are interested in scheduling or booking space/ lessons: 971-998-5120
