The circumstances of these kids lives we cannot change, some more bleak than others. However, by providing these kids with the platform to express themselves and to open up and to ask the questions they’re dying to ask, is what our objective is. We surround them with love and with people to turn to when things are tough, most importantly we provide them with a support structure.
We aim to ensure that their future’s are secure. Although they’re being skilled to be dancers and performers, should it not be what they desire to pursue after finishing school, we’d still be there guiding and assisting and applying to institutions on their behalf. We want to grow strong people, not only strong performers. The dance is a tool to help them recognize their potential.
These workshops are vital in that it allows us to motivate and encourage our children in a non pressurized environment. It has definitely made an impact in their lives, the changes are evident in their conduct. It’s hard to remain positive when you’re a teenager, battling to discover yourself, facing normal teenage challenges and in addition to this having to deal with the conditions they live in.
