We are using dance to rebuild community.
The Cocoon: Youth Empowerment Program provides a safe space for our youth to grow into dynamic, informed leaders in their communities and beyond.
We provide our students with dance technique, composition, and leadership training. The goal is not just to train dancers, but leaders, who can translate the teamwork, innovation and expressive skills learned as members of a dance ensemble into creative leadership skills to be applied to community uplift.By providing diverse experiences in dance forms from many cultures, students gain an understanding of cross-cultural expression. By engaging in professional choreography technique, they learn how to express themselves.
