Windsor Mill, MD (PRWEB) April 3, 2011
(MOVE) Monsters On The Move Foundation, Inc., a new 501-c3 non-profit organization, was created by Monsters of HipHop LLC to provide aspiring, underprivileged dancers the financial support necessary to pursue a quality dance education and fulfill their artistic goals. Scholarship funds will be used to assist in paying for dance education at accredited schools, organizations or institutions. The creators of MOVE mandate that scholarship recipients "Pay It Forward” by giving back to their school, church or community. The appropriate "giving back" should mirror the good intentions bestowed by the organization.
This move comes after almost 12 years of contributions to various charities including American Cancer Society, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and many more. Since 1999, MOVE’s founders and staff have been involved in the dance industry and decided to focus their philanthropic efforts on the industry that has supported them for so long. “We have seen the tremendous positive impact that dance has had on so many individuals and we wanted to provide the same opportunities to those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to experience it,” said Founder Andy Funk.
“It saddens me that so much money is being taking out of arts programs in public schools nationwide. MOVE is such a necessity to the arts community as a whole. I look forward to seeing numerous dancers provided the opportunity to further cultivate their craft! MOVE Foundation rocks!”

“I must say, I am extremely excited for the launch of MOVE! I was that kid that had a huge passion and love for dance and wanted to take classes, but just could not afford it. MOVE will give those dancers, who also have that passion for dance but aren’t so financially fit, the opportunity to expand their knowledge in the field and be inspired beyond ones imagination.”
