Participants are dressed in Ball gowns and tuxedos as well as African Dance costumes. The importance of providing the youth with dance routines will help them build creative thinking skills as well as discipline, commitment, and work ethic. The waltz routine encourages the participants to work on movements through imagination and exploration. Students will not only gain and expand their physical fitness, but also mentally as they learn that it takes hard work and dedication to achieve their goals and dreams. Their work ethic in the dance sessions spills over to their schooling and other activities. For our students, dance is an expression between mind body and spirit.
