About Me

Hello! My name is Aloysius. I am 25 year old from Indonesia. Currently, I live in Bekasi, West Java province with my parents and brothers.

Since I was 5, dancing has been my great passion. I always dream to become a professional dancer and teach youngsters. Unfortunately, I never had a chance to go through any proper education or course in dance when I was young, but always persistently trained myself hard all by myself. When I was in high school, I established my own dance community and managed to collect more than 100 achievements through dance competitions ranging from local to national levels that made me get scholarship to continue my dance education in Singapore. After 3 years of study, I came back to Indonesia to share my knowledge and experiences. I personally feel that dance has changed my life so much. I learn to be tough, persistent, optimistic, hardworking and not every teenager in Indonesia know how to incorporate these precious values to their life through dancing. My mission is to educate and train young people who have the same passion in dance to learn a lot of positive life values such as: leadership, teamwork, positive thinking, determination, problem solving, etc through dance as a fun and interesting way. It's my passion to encourage and motivate young people to appreciate their time by doing something positive using their talents rather than wasting time doing something useless.

My Business

Through the community that I have been established since high school, I expand my mission by providing a place for young people where I can teach them all my knowledge that I have experienced overseas. Since it is not a dance school or studio (because I do not work commercially. I teach people voluntarily), sometimes it is hard for me to pay rental fee and all its expenses. My community is having more members day by day but does not have enough place to rehearse and train our skills yet every year the rental fee is getting more expensive than I expect.

Since I am not qualified enough to borrow money from bank, through Zidisha, I hope that I can find someone who is willing to help me lending money so that I can pay my rental fee and provide them a deserve place to learn dance, to teach and share my positive dance values. It is a pity to see that there is not enough appreciation for dancers here, so I kind of hard to find sponsors that can help me and my community to grow and survive. Also, not every member in my community comes from quite wealthy family. To me dance is for everybody even if you come from a poor family.

For additional information, I have several dance crews that always join competitions every month. They are trained to dance well and also good in personality. By winning several dance competitions every month, we will use the money prize to pay back money that we borrow from Zidisha. We have won hundreds of achievements and very optimistic to win with our determination and dedication. We will work hard for it.

Your help is very precious for me and my community.

Feel free to check my blog for more information regarding my activities here in Indonesia.

Thank you for reading my profile.

Loan Proposal

First of all, I would like to thank Zidisha and all lenders again for borrowing me money. There is no words that can describe how grateful I am for your help and sincerity. May God always bless you all. I also want to tell you that we just accepted approximately 60 new students joining our community and we are so excited about it!

As for the loan, I am going to spend the money to order numbers of new dance shoes because in a few next months, we are going to have a lot of competitions and it is a great opportunity for my students to compete and showcase their skills, Since the shoes that we want to order need certain materials and are handmade, also designed according to each size of foot, the price is not as cheap as we think and it takes quit long time to be made. we prefer no to use ordinary shoes because it used to be easily damaged and sometimes hurt our feet. Also, we intend to design a few props to enhance our performances according to the theme or story plot. Until now, we are still sorting the materials that we want to use so that it is affordable yet long lasting. We really appreciate anyone who are willing to help us since majority of my students are not from wealthy family and there is no art foundation or community service in our area where we can ask for help.

Once again, I want to thank Zidisha and all lenders for your help and I will work hard to repay the loan on time like my previous ones. Your little help really means a lot to us! Have a good day everyone!
