Dance from the Heart Program for Girls
Dance from the Heart for Girls program aims to serve young women ages 12-18 years old from under-served communities in Los Angeles. In 2018, we are partnering with several local organizations including Sisters of South L.A. to offer Dance from the Heart workshops for girls that cultivate self-confidence, a loving relationship to the body, & healthy lifestyle to prevent eating disorders, bullying and relationship violence.
