Our Mission

Empowering underserved youth through dance, fitness and life skill development.

 

DMF Youth believes in educating the whole child–physical, mental, emotional.  We provide free high quality after-school and summer programing to underserved youth in New York City.

Our programs are led by highly trained teaching artists that not only provide quality arts education, but also the nurturing, love, and mentorship many kids need to flourish both in and outside of the classroom.

We use dance as a way of fostering collaboration, cooperation and communication with at risk youth, some of which would previously resort to violence or isolation. As our kids learn and become proficient in new skills, their self-esteem soars and they realize they are capable of anything they put their mind to.

We’ve collaborated with principals, teachers and psychologists to develop a curriculum that helps kids shed the need to be life everyone else and tap into their own unique potential. By using the competencies of Social Emotional Learning (SEL) we are able to creatively weave life skills like goal setting, dealing with emotions, empathy and leadership into the curriculum, making DMF Youth truly unique.
