D.A.N.C.E. (Developing And Nurturing Community Empowerment – est. 2007) is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to impacting the lives of youth, their families, and their communities through the performing arts. Our goal is to provide affordable high quality arts training to youth ages 3-18 from all socioeconomic groups without financial barriers. At D.A.N.C.E., we believe in training the whole individual; all of our participants, who are referred to as S.T.A.R.S. (Students Taking Active Roles in Society) are held to a high standard in a fun, family like environment. Our Dance Training Programs provide our S.T.A.R.S. with rigorous, quality training in multiple styles of dance, including: ballet, jazz, acrobatics, tap, hip hop, modern, and more. In 2009, after recognizing the need to provide pre-professional performance opportunities and training to our advanced participants, we started S.T.A.R.S. Dance Company (SDC), a national award winning dance team comprised of dancers ages 5-18. Members of the SDC have been able to travel across the country to train and compete without financial barriers. The next audition for SDC will be held on Sunday, November 3rd. Our program runs from September through June. We will accept new students through December 1st or until programs are full. We will hold a recital in June where all of our participants are able to showcase what they have learned in a formal performance. Our S.T.A.R.S. Dance Training Programs are filling up fast, don’t delay, join the D.A.N.C.E. Family today!
