An introduction to the LDF

Thank you for visiting, we appreciate your interest in the work we do at the Line Dance Foundation and hope this site answers any questions you might have.

The LDF is charity that provides a way for the Line dance community to give practical and financial support to people who earn their living – or part of their living – through Line dance and now find themselves in need or distress.

By pulling together for the Line Dance Foundation we have been able to help many people who have faced difficult and challenging circumstances.

Where it all began

The Line Dance Foundation (LDF) was founded in 2007 by Betty Drummond of Linedancer Magazine with the aim of establishing a charity to support those people involved the Line dance business who found themselves in difficult circumstances through illness, accident or other distressing circumstances which affected their ability to work and earn a living.

Who benefits?

We help anyone who is involved in Line dance on a profession basis be that part-time or full time, anywhere in the world and in any capacity be it Choreographer, Instructor, Performer, DJ or Event Organiser. 

Details of the donations we make to beneficiaries are kept completely confidentiality. However, sometimes beneficiaries are happy to let it be known they have needed and received help but disclosure will never come from the LDF.
