Project Report | Jul 22, 2019
DEA YDP Summer 2019

At the end of our 2019 spring sessions, The DEA Youth Dance Program energized communities across the country through end of the school year student classes and performances. Also during this time the DEA YDP was thrilled to offer a workshop with the Fall River Young Marines in Massachusetts.  DEA YDP Instructor Henry led students through a breakdancing and hip hop class with an enthusiastic group of Young Marines, while a DEA YDP Regional Director spoke to the kids about the importance of a positive alternative to drug abuse through a healthy alternative such as dance.

 

Now, after a fun summer offering continuing classes for students across the country through dance studio scholarships, summer camps, and special workshops, we are gearing up for a far-reaching and exciting fall! The DEA Youth Dance Program new school year launches start nationwide in August! We are thrilled to be expanding our reach to include Knoxville TN, Flagstaff AZ, Tampa FL, Cleveland OH, New Bedford MA, and New Orleans LA as community partner with the DEA 360 Strategy.

 

This year, National Dance Day will fall on September 21st, and we can’t wait to celebrate with American Dance Movement (formerly Dizzy Feet Foundation) and spread our message of healthy living through dance!

 

Also, in October, we will celebrate the Red Ribbon Campaign at our fall dance launches to honor the legacy of DEA agent Enrique (Kiki) Camarena who tragically lost his life to drug traffickers in Mexico. We will remember Agent Camarena’s fight against violent drug crime and addiction and help to reflect the National Red Ribbon Campaign in building awareness about the dangers of drugs, and encouraging youth to make positive choices. Students attending DEA Youth Dance Program launch assemblies this fall will receive red ribbons and learn how professional dancers keep themselves healthy to pursue their passion for dance by choosing to say “no” to drugs and violence.

 

As we embark on our most active year-to-date, we count on your support to further our mission of providing safe and positive alternative to drugs through long-term dance classes for students across the country. Please consider a recurring monthly donation that will help us support children throughout the entire year through free dance classes. Your financial contribution makes a difference in the life of a child who otherwise may not have access to dance, and we are grateful for your continued support!
