I'm David Thomas, a New York professional Choreographer, Instructor/Mentor, as well as a respected dancer. The borough of the Bronx is where I am from. The birthplace of Hip Hop, the same place where I founded a Hip Hop dance company popularly known as "We Run This (WRT) "The Collective".


Established in 2006, WRT's foundation is much more than Hip Hop. We live true to our mission and inspire, mentor, and impact the lives of people with a passion for dance both young and old. We do this by utilizing creative movement, performance cultivation, and community. WRT utilizes dance to grow the competencies that re-engage disenfranchised & underrepresented dancers. Bridging the generational gap between youth and adults by incorporating not only complex choreography, & creative concepts, but also themes and music bringing a fresh new authentic style to the table, as well as creating a safe Family Oriented foundation & home for our dancers.

The experience of learning the art form has developed greater discipline, maturity, encouraged independent decision-making, self-esteem, and task completion skill sets. As a member and participant in this company, they have not only reconnected with the drive to become better versions of themselves; but now have the confidence, passion, and tools to cultivate and nurture internal passion of growth on to others.

We are writing this to inquire about possible donations for We Run This (WRT) “The Collective”. We are currently gearing for the upcoming competition season. Performance & Festival season is where we dance for a plethora of different events. We have been grateful to receive local accolades in the most strenuous competitions, showcases and various local Dance events such as Prelude Dance Competition, & World of Dance. These opportunities give highlight to our dancers intensified training and skills, allowing them exposure to different talent scouts & agencies. We are in higher demand to perform in larger events but are unable due to lack of resources. We wish to expand and excel onto a higher platform.


Your sponsorship and in-kind support will help us in our attempt to cover expenses of travel to and from out of state shows, & small compensations supplied such as water, towels and sweat rags. During preparation for these events, we will be putting together short dance film concepts as well as pictures advertising, promoting, & thanking all our sponsors via YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok and all other social media platforms. As a program under a 501c3 non profit organization, we can provide receipts for your tax-deductible donation.

Please know that any amount will help us reach our goal. Please know that any amount will help us reach our goal. Help us make the lives of young artists a bit better today. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
