Enriching lives with DJDs Send a Kid to Camp
DJD is committed to enriching the lives of everyone in our community and this means reaching out to the underprivileged children of our city and providing an opportunity to connect with the arts through dance.
What does the gift of dance do? Thanks to this program these children are given the gift of dance – growing self-confidence, blossoming friendships and creative expression. The children are excited to share what they have learned to parents and guardians by the end of the week.
In 2012-2013, DJD awarded 53 bursaries to low-income families. These bursaries enabled children to attend week long summer dance camps at DJD. You can learn more about the program and how to get involved by clicking on the link Send a Kid to Camp.
It is remarkable to see the children become unafraid to try new things, gain greater self-confidence and coordination, make new friends and learn creative ways to express themselves. These are important lessons they carry with them for a lifetime.
It’s truly amazing what can be done with dance!
