The Beats of India is a chance for people to see various NYC Indian dance groups showcase their talents. Indian dance is constantly evolving while also staying true to its traditional roots. Dancing For A Difference is a nonprofit organization that aims to raise awareness for the beauty of the Indian arts as well as to bring the dance community together. All proceeds from the show will go towards our mission - providing free dance classes to low-income communities in NYC in addition to Free the Slaves https://www.freetheslaves.net/ a nonprofit organization that aims to eradicate slavery around the world.

 

In order to make this show happen, I need your help! Your donations go to:

1) Free dance classes for young girls ages 7-9 in Harlem

2) Free dance classes for students ages 14-18 in Harlem

3) Costumes and props

4) Dance studio rental

5) Theater space rental for this amazing show!

6) Portion of your donations go to the nonprofit organization, Free the Slaves 

Facts:

-"Nearly four million children (16 percent) are living in families at or below the federal poverty level" (provided by NCCP)

-"Twenty percent of young children (over 4.7 million) are affected by three or more risk factors" (provided by NCCP)

- "Leading causes of morbidity and mortality among youth and 
adults in the United States are related to six categories of priority 
health-risk behaviors: 1) behaviors that contribute to unintentional 
injuries and violence; 2) tobacco use; 3) alcohol and other drug use; 
4) sexual behaviors that contribute to unintended pregnancy and 
sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV infection; 
5) unhealthy dietary behaviors; and 6) physical inactivity" (provided by CDC)

Dancing For A Difference believes that dance can be healing and fun while giving young kids a physical activity after school - a place where they can make good friends and have mentors to help them through tough situations. Dance increases self-confidence and is a great way for kids to express themselves.
