The Make it Happen fund was set up in remembrance of Greg Matthews who was a vibrant teacher at UDC.
Greg joined UDC in 2010 and taught the boys Street dance group The Noise, he put them through their paces and he bought this new group of young lads up to an amazing standard. He was well respected by them and was a loyal teacher and friend.
Greg sadly passed away in a road accident in March 2012 and a Just Giving fund was set up for him by his family. It was decided by Gregs parents to donate some of the money from this fund to UDC so that we can outreach to children in the local community who may not be able to normally afford to take part in dance classes. We now have regular children that come to UDC who are supported by the Make It Happen fund, its gives us great pleasure at UDC to see these children getting involved and learning a life skill. They take part in all the activities that UDC organises and are part of our dance family.
Dance is a great way for children to develop self esteem, build friendships, become confident young people as they make their way through different stages in their lives. We have seen amazing results from having these children as part of our dance family.
