The Legacy Project Dance Crew
The Legacy Project, LLC is a Christ centered program designed to grow an individual in their art form. We believe that as followers of Christ, with God as our Creator, and the Holy Sprit as our guide, the level of excellence in our craft should not only be better than the world’s standard, but should also have the ability to impact our audience. Our goal is to produce industry standard artist with the ability to responsibly influence the generations to come, thus leaving their legacy through Christ on this earth. We believe that God creates people to fulfill a specific purpose. The Legacy Project will help cultivate that purpose into an ability to influence and leave a legacy that, points toward Christ. The core classes offered should be viewed as training rather than a class teaching a set of moves or chords. The Legacy Project will teach the “why” behind what you are doing – not only in physical application but spirituality and character as well.
The Legacy Project Company – a group of professional (dancers, musicians, dj’s, free runners ect.) who are hand selected to tour around the United States with the Legacy Project ministering at different venues. This team requires all artists to be excellent in their faith and to be excellent in their ability. The members of the Legacy Project Company have gone through the LP’s discipleship program and are the core of the Legacy Project School.
Where can I learn more about the project?
Is my pledge amount publicly displayed?
No. Only you and the project creator can see your pledge amount.
Do I have to pay right now?
No. Your credit card will only be charged if we meet our final goal.
If I donate, when can I redeem my reward?
Only once our goal is met can we offer you the rewards we promise. If we meet our goal, we will contact you to start the process. However, please keep in mind that most rewards such as posters, screenings, parties, DVDs etc. can only be offered after the film is completed, so please bear with us!
What if I don’t want the reward, I just want to support?
We appreciate and thank you for all of your support! There will be a button that you can select if you don’t want the reward.
Can the project exceed the goal?
YES! Any and all pledges are greatly appreciated! Kick Starter allows us to raise as much money as possible as long as we do that before the deadline. We are working with a tight budget, so exceeding the goal will help the projects production value with expenses for better film cameras, lighting equipment, etc.
Can I increase my pledge once it’s been made?
YES! Once you donate to our film, you may change your pledge level to a different one. To do so, go to Kick Starter and sign in. When you go to our campaign page, the green “Back This Project” button would have been replaced with a blue “Manage Your Donation” button. Click it and you can enter a new amount, or choose a new reward.
Can I give my reward to someone else as a gift?
YES! If you would like to donate to the film but give your reward to someone as a gift, go through all the normal process of making a donation in your name (for billing purposes, this action must be in your name). Once our goal is met and we are ready to send you the rewards, we will send you a message on Kick Starter (which is forwarded to the email address you provided). At that time, you can send us the gift recipient’s information, and any note you’d like to include. We’ll make sure they get the reward.
What happens if the money isn’t raised in time? If our goal isn’t met before the deadline, WE WILL NOT RECEIVE A SINGLE DOLLAR. We wont be able to keep ANY of the already pledged donations if the MAIN GOAL is NOT made by the deadline and we won't be able to fund and make our film. Your card won't be charged.
Who does the money go to?
Every dollar (minus Kick Starter’s fees) will go directly towards the budget for the film. I'm not in the US.
Can I still pledge to projects? Yes, you can pledge from anywhere in the world!
How do we contact you?
We would love any questions and/or comments. You can emails us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond promptly.
