Help us expand our Leaders' Guild fee support program
and empower the transformative work of the dances!

'Actually, although we seem to be in a world of song and dance, 
we are most concerned with peace on earth.' 
Murshid Samuel Lewis

The Dances of Universal Peace have fulfilled the vision of their founder, Murshid Samuel L. Lewis, flourishing in more than 25 countries all over the world.  DUP International connects and supports the dedicated dance leaders around the world who share that vision, providing resources in multiple languages to facilitate their sharing of the Dances and Walks in local communities.

  DUP International's Fee Support Program makes it possible for all mentored leaders to participate in the Leaders Guild, 
regardless of ability to pay  

Many of our leaders face difficult circumstances, limiting their ability to afford the fees that collectively fund and sustain these resources.  Some may be living in countries still recovering from civil war, where the Dances have helped to build peace in shattered communities; others may be leading vibrant Dance circles many hours from major population centers where they connect with the wider dance family; many are sharing the transformative power of the Dances and Walks while at the same time struggling to meet basic living expenses.
You can make a difference
Compared to last year we have seen a 25% increase in the calls on the fee support program. Some communities in soft currency areas are now able to contribute more than before, as an offer of their commitment to the Dances; but as the dances spread to new areas - including India, Turkey, Sri Lanka and China - we have further exciting opportunities, in these places and closer to home, to show our support for those who need it.

Your donations to the fee support fund make a huge impact
We are seeking to provide a fund of $2,500, from a community of 1,200 dance leaders. 

You may like to add $20 to your fee renewal, or $36 to cover the full fees for one leader; and e ven a modest contribution can make a real difference  to individuals in our community.

Contributions are federally tax-deductible in the USA.

Thank you very much!
