Welcome to The Power of Dance, where dancers perform not just for applause, but for a cause! Each studio that enters The Power of Dance chooses a charity to represent, and competes not just to win cash prizes for themselves, but donations for their charity as well. In the last few years, we've helped raise over $179,000 for worthy causes, thanks to studio onwers that care about the development of their students not just as dancers, but as people.
The message that The Power of Dance wants to send to your kids, and ours, is that their talents and gifts do not reach their true potential until they are used to help others. Twenty years from today, your dancer will not remember what color ribbon she got last weekend. But she will remember the time that she danced to help pay for a baby's surgery. Or to grant a gravely ill child's wish. Or to help a family who lost their home to a fire. She'll remember that she joined with her fellow artists in a common cause, and that together they made a difference in someone's life.
There are definitely many positives in the dance competition experience -- the kids learn about teamwork and discipline while having a ball, the performance experience is priceless, and being a part of a performing team is without a doubt a blessing in the lives of thousands of children each year. But to us, there is often something missing. Call it heart, call it soul, call it what you will. And that's why we've decided to harness The Power of Dance, and to encourage today's dancers to not only do well, but to do Good. We hope you'll join us!
