Empowering children and youth of all backgrounds to advance critical skills needed for success in school and in the community through the power of dance education.

OUR PURPOSE

Take action and reach deep in the community to provide children and youth, particularly those with diverse learning challenges, quality programs designed to train physical literacy and mental flexibility while strengthening empathy, artistry, and leadership.

Footnote: Our “DARE-2-Dance-Your-Brain” program, previously offered in public schools, will be in-residence at the Saint James Music Academy for the entire school year, 2023-24, offering free after-school dance education to 120 students from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

OUR GOAL is to raise $20,000 in order to,

1. Fulfill our year-long commitment to provide free dance education for 120 children and youth at the St. James Music Academy (a further $5,000 is needed)

2. Resume in-school programs and reach out to more students under-served by the arts ($10,000)

3. Partner with community service groups to offer free after-school programs for immigrant and single-parent families ($5,000)

Make your contribution and ignite the power of joyous and rigorous learning for more students.

ABOUT US

DARE-2-Danzkool is a collaboration between the Danzkool Company and the Charitable Impact Foundation dedicated to enriching the lives of children and youth through dance education.

Tim Mah is a dynamic dance educator and a passionate advocate for the power of dance to transform lives. Inspired by the science behind childhood learning and development, he created “DARE-2-Dance-Your-Brain”, a unique dance-themed program that combines skilled-movement, live music, and the art of dancing into tasks designed to scaffold learning, enhance social and emotional development, and foster good mental health.

The science is out. Adele Diamond, distinguished UBC-professor of neuroscience, considers learning to dance invaluable training for advancing critical skills needed for higher-Executive Function. Notably, teachers who participated in DARE-2-Dance programs in their classrooms observed higher levels of motivation among students, particularly those with diverse learning challenges.

In the words of a 6th-grade teacher, “I’ve seen dance programs come and go for over-20 years, but this is the first that got everybody engaged, including the kids who never do anything.”

Thanks to support from donors like you, DARE-2-Dance programs have been in schools across Greater Vancouver including Sir James Douglas Elementary and Prince of Wales Secondary in Vancouver, Cascade Heights Elementary in Burnaby, and William Bridges Elementary in Richmond. Thank you.
