Summary

Holistic Dance is a series of workshops and 15 week programs designed in levels/ages ranging from 8 yrs - young adult. With Art Studio's integrated standards, these programs use dance, mindful movement, breath-work, music, journaling and visual art components to create a container for students to explore emotions and learn tools for personal/collaborative expressions through art and storytelling. Exploring physical and energetic anatomy becomes a foundation for awareness, empowerment & healing.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Tools like mindful breathing, yoga, dance, art, have proven results in focus, happiness, clear decision making, personal and collective awareness skills, disciple, self-esteem, and connection, among many other known benefits, yet this education is costly not often available for At-Risk youth as life skills for empowerment. Holistic Dance, is Aligned with Art Studio's vision "to utilize arts & wellness mediums to promote solutions that support human rights, life skills and career development.

How will this project solve this problem?

We provide holistic and creative education to At-Risk youth. Holistic Dance is a positive way to unblock and move stuck energy or stuck emotions that are often expressed in harmful ways and no longer serve the individual. Grasping the lessons of self-reflection that come from building awareness and mindfulness, leads to embodying the ability for compassion, gratitude, purpose and grace. When the body mind and soul move towards alignment, healing personal and collective stories can happen.

Potential Long Term Impact

The students participating in these programs will see the benefits of acquiring new information and skills of transformation, to be implemented into art and storytelling. The end result instills in each student a sense of accomplishment, professional development, and a portfolio piece that highlights their individual and collaborative stories through performance, writing, visual art projects, cultural sharing and exchange. This project will support positive personal and interpersonal change.
