Danse Danse in the Community
In 2005 Danse Danse established the outreach project Get Youth into Dance, an access-to-dance program that transcends economic, social and cultural barriers by offering tickets to performances to targetted organizations and schools that work with disadvantaged youth. Danse Danse also makes dance accessible to school audiences, and our support and teaching activities help make their dance outing a significant experience.
