 What Will You Dance For?

Inclusion - Children with special needs and learning differences are often excluded from traditional dance and arts programs.

Kindness - Bullying is a rising crisis and affects all ages…..This is a universal problem and Dance is a universal language.....using the language of dance we can show kindness - create awareness - motivate people.

Community - Creating opportunities and bringing dance into each community allowing all to join in.  Dance benefits everyone - not just a few!
