How Can Dance Benefit the Community?
Dance is a universal language! Everyone is welcome to dance. We want our children to be brought up in a community with social diversity and acceptance. The best way to build acceptance to diversity is by bringing everyone together sharing a common ground. Dance can do that for this community by offering a means for everyone to explore different cultures, ways of life, ideas, expressions, and thoughts.
Developing Team Work
Not only will our children learn the value of teamwork and working together, but the community will as well. We will all come together to ensure that our children are receiving the best education, growing up in a healthy environment and reaching towards a common goal of having a wonderful community for everyone who lives here.
Happier Children and Less Crime
Thirteen to seventeen year old juvenile offenders and other disenfranchised youth, took jazz and hip hip classes twice a week for ten weeks. They developed significant gains in confidence, tolerance and persistence after taking the classes. According to “Critical Evidence, How the Arts Benefit Student Achievement.” Studies like these show the positive impact dance can have on our youth. Not to mention, participating in before and after school programs, parents can rest assured that their children are in a safe environment with adult supervision.
