7 reasons you're lucky to be a dancer

Not every kid comes to the studio or any other classroom with the same privileges. But each comes with the potential to be amazing, to do something magnificent. With some financial commitment behind our efforts, looking for beauty in our differences, and maintaining excellence in training, this is how we can begin to be more just & inclusive, and to truly open up the door to every dancer to any dance style regardless of who they are or what they look like.

Can I get an AMEN!? #whydancematters ---- Many times, art teachers defend art education by saying that it raises test scores, keeps kids in school, or improves student performance in "core" academic areas. This may all be true, but the visual arts teach important "habits of mind" that can't be learned in traditionally "core" academic areas.
