Everybody Dance LA! transforms lives and communities through the power of dance. We serve more than 4,000 students age 4-19 annually with high quality dance education in low-income areas of Los Angeles. Our classes, offered at little or no cost, are taught by professional teaching artists who instill high expectations and cultivate the lifelong skills of collaboration, discipline and self-expression.
We operate our program in three safe and supportive dance studios in low-income neighborhoods in LA.
We teach hundreds of students in 28 schools in McArthur Park, East Los Angeles, Hollywood, South Los Angeles, and Watts.
We engage new students through week-long Everybody Dance LA! camps and returning students through a 6-week summer session.
The best dance education program I have ever encountered…As I traveled through the many studios, I immediately noticed the way children stood, confidently in space. There was this incredible sense of equality and confidence, no one hiding in a corner, or pushing their way forward. These children of all different backgrounds seemed wonderfully comfortable in their skin.
