Dare to Be:

The Dare to B project is 14 week breakdancing (b-boy/b-girl) youth inspiration program and we have inspiring over a hundred teens to express themselves through dance. The goal of the program is to:

• Guide the students to learning dance and being physically active and healthy

• Give an outlet of expression in an environment of respect and discipline

• Award recognition of accomplishments and give thoughtful, constructive personal critiques

• Provide opportunities for participants to shine in front of their peers (in a showcase) and in doing so encourage others to make similar positive constructive choices

• Provide an opportunity at the end of term event for participants to compete against other members of the program across the city in a positive and encouraging manner

• Encourage a network of DARE to B graduates who teach others and support dance initiatives in their own community

We plan to expand this program to 16 schools next year, and with your support by simply attending the event will contribute to accomplishing this dream.
