Studies have suggested students who dance achieve a full letter grade higher in academic subjects than students who do not dance. The positive effects of dance in school go beyond high GPA into standardized testing. According to Carter, “The College Board revealed that students who take arts courses tend to score higher on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) than those who do not,” and are more likely to be successful in college. Dance has a beneficial effect on people of any age in their cognitive learning abilities.
We aim to empower the youth to get themselves an education so they can lift themselves out of poverty.
