All children should be empowered to follow their dreams, wherever those dreams take them. Diversity in dance makes our Arts community more beautiful, balanced and a true representation of our vibrant world. Let’s work together to make our world better and give children of all backgrounds equal footing in the wonderful world of dance! Dance is for everyone and Diversity En Pointe makes that a reality.
