Let the Light Shine On at Hip Circle

Empowerment Center

Let the light shine on at Hip Circle!

Women are stronger than society wants them to know. At Hip Circle we make sure they get that message. We share and reinforce the radical notion when we dance, talk, sweat, build, discover, support, laugh, learn, cry, reframe, and stretch. The power in all we do is clear to the women who visit. We want to see that light shine on more women and girls. With your help, we can make that a reality.

The fees we charge for classes and workshops only get us part way to meeting our financial obligations. Our space is critically important to the work we do. These lights, walls, floors, and doors house all of the work we do and give our students a safe space to discover the awesome they are made of.

Your gift this year can let the light shine on in many ways…

  • A $10 gift will offset a single class for a woman using our sliding scale.
  • Giving at a $50 level makes a class “pay what you can” and decreases barriers for women wanting to participate who may have financial limitations.
  • An inspiring gift of $75 will pay for a month of internet services (so we can stream students in from home, a significant benefit to single mothers).
  • A gift of $150 will cover a one-month membership for a woman to join Hip Circle.
  • $1,200 will cover the cost of a teacher trainee’s tuition to become trained in Hip Circle’s change-making philosophy ensuring our teachings reach even more women and girls.
  • A generous gift of $5000 will cover the expenses for a month’s worth of services.

Every dollar you give strengthens our community and brings our services to more women and girls.

Thank you for supporting our mission and being a champion of women in our community and for working with us to keep their light shining!
