Our Mission

Dancers Rising’s mission is to enable equal access to high-quality dance education and higher education to dancers and aspiring dancers so they will have an equal opportunity to succeed.

We believe that dance transcends barriers and has the power to inspire and motivate people.  Our goal is to use dance and education to promote the arts, to foster diversity in dance, to reduce the achievement and opportunity gaps that exist in our underserved communities, and to empower our next generation of leaders to lead and make our communities a better place to live.

The way we will achieve our mission is to offer high quality dance education programs and independent college counseling services to our dancers to get them prepared and ready for college, with a focus on students in underserved communities. See “Our Programs” for more information about these services.
