Project Overview

We want to create a space where dance enthusiasts - professionals or amateurs - can meet and enrich the practice of their art through these exchanges. Thus, we wish to establish a dance studio in Geneva that which will serve as a meeting venue, host our activities - conferences, workshops - and will welcome in optimal conditions Romandie artists who need a place to create or rehearse.

Back from holidays and to the project!

Dear Contributors,

We hope you had a wonderful summer break. It's back to work time for Akhtar: the project team came back rejuvenated from their holidays and more determined than ever!

The first site meeting took place at the beginning of the week. The work to be carried out as a priority has been determined and the companies to be commissioned have been selected. We have also started to acquire equipment - taps, tiles, tools. We are now waiting for the formal agreement of the owner of the premises before kicking off construction works. We are looking forward to it!

Goodies are being prepared/ coordinated and will be delivered in fall. In this regard, we are preparing a surprise for the next newsletter. A hint: the dinosaurs are on board too!

Finally, we are pleased to announce that the second session of our Extravadanza event! - we will do everything we can to make it become a must on Geneva scene - will take place on the weekend of the 6th and 7th June 2020. It will be structured around dance workshops and a performance.

We are continuing the fundraising campaign to raise the remaining amount needed to set up the studio he way we planned it. We should get answers from the foundationss we contacted within a few weeks, keep your fingers crossed with us!

Thank you again for your support, we are looking forward to giving you more news!

Cristina, Cyrielle, Eleonora and Séverine for Association Akhtar association.

PS: We kindly ask the contributors who have not yet replied to our message about the delivery of their goodie to come back to us as soon as possible!

20k - We made it!

Dear Boosters,

It is an immense joy and thrill to inform you that we succeded in raising 20k thank to your generosity!

This sum will allow us to finance the installation of a Harlequin dance floor, for the greater comfort of our users.

It will also allow us to gain credibility with the foundations, companies and other sponsors that we will approach to cover the costs of masonry, plumbing and electrical work.

We look forward to keeping you regularly informed about the progress of the refurbishment works we will undertake, as well as the additional funds we will raise. Akhtar's adventure is just starting!

In the meantime, you can keep watching the virtual tour of our studio and the Dinosaurs Challenges on our www.facebook.com page and www.youtube.com channel

Thank you again and again,
Cristina, Cyrielle, Eleonora and Séverine for Association Akhtar

14k raised - Final countdown!

Dear Booster,

We have raised over 14k so far thank to your generosity!

The final countdown has started: we have less than 24 hours left! We still have to raise 5'500 CHF to secure the amount of 20k for our project. It is time for the final push! Then we will stop stalking you, we promise!

Do you know someone who is active on social media? An influencer? An artist with a huge network? A journalist or a radio host? Or someone who loves organic honey, is passionate about natural health, parents that are looking for gift ideas for their children... It is time to let them know about us!

The campaign will come to an end tomorrow at 10:00 am - we will make sure we make everything we can to meet our goal in the meantime!

By the way, we popped up at One FM and Radio Lac studios early this morning to offer croissants to the broadcasters team ;-)

Thank you always for your incredible support!
