EMPOWER A GENERATION
The School of SOS mission is to empower a generation of Queens to believe in themselves, using dance as a source of strength, power and confidence which they can carry through to every aspect of their lives.
According to the World Economic Forum, at the current rate of change it will take 202 years to reach workplace equality. Our boldest goal, at the heart of everything we do, is to empower Queens from all backgrounds, races, religions, body types and ethnicities - a whole generation - to achieve what's important to them, through the power of dance. By doing this, as a global community we will shift the needle on equality faster, building a safer, happier, more balanced world... one sass-fuelled SOS class at a time!

POWERED BY WOMEN
The School of SOS was founded by professional backing dancer @bonnieparsons, and is the first company in the world to raise startup investment from an all-female investor squad!
Bonnie founded her first company Seen on Screen in London while dancing for the likes of Kelly Rowland, X Factor, Professor Green, Florence & The Machine and Sony Playstation, having got the original idea for Seen On Screen while backstage at the X Factor Live Shows.
When Seen on Screen was featured as the nation's best dance classes by Vogue, Glamour, ELLE, BuzzFeed, Cosmopolitan, ITV's This Morning, Grazia and many more, Bonnie began receiving countless requests from dance lovers across the world asking for SOS to come to their city. Bonnie began raising investment for her second company, School of SOS to fulfil demand, but was repeatedly turned down by male investors for 3 years. She realised it wasn't just her, and that only 2.2% of all Venture Capital funding goes to female founders. In response, Bonnie launched the world’s first all-female investment round on Instagram and hit the investment target required to launch School of SOS, in just 2 weeks.
“Lister Parsons decided to change the rules of the game… she announced the offer on Instagram. The call to action was "invest like a woman.”– Forbes
Thanks to the support of the exceptional women who back School of SOS, Bonnie and the SOS team are bringing SOS straight to your doorstep, with a life-changing class on every corner, and on every device - reaching Queens across the globe, everyday.
