The Problem

Our wish is to grow a community of peace and compassion through the ritual of dance. We pay respect to the graceful dance of the bee, the flexibility of the earth worm, the sweet songs of the birds, and the rhythm of the crickets while dancing ballet!

Our Plan

Our project will give teenage refugees a safe place to honor the human condition. We will do this by, 1) coming together each week to strengthen our mind - body connection through the practice of ballet, 2) Incorporating music from around the world including natural sounds, 3) At the end of every class, we will incorporate a dance from each student's culture, highlighting the diversity and different meanings of dance, 4) we will open and close every class with wish/prayer for the earth, its animals, or its people.
