Dancing into Fall with the Youth Dance Program!

The DEA Educational Foundation was thrilled to keep students dancing this summer through various summer workshops and camps! Thanks to great summer weather and some state and local openings, as well as due to the diligence of staff and instructors, the DEAEF was able to host some in-person programs for the first time in 15 months. And, whether dance programs were in-person, virtual or hybrid, our instructors brought their best, modeling positive and healthy choices like committing to activities like dance. Due to the success of the Youth Dance Program, the DEA Educational Foundation has launched other youth programs in the past couple of years such as art, baseball, martial arts, soccer and basketball. 

 

Also this year, the DEAEF is honored to have been selected to work with the DEA through their latest endeavor Operation Engage. Operation Engage is a “comprehensive approach that will target the top drug threat identified by the local DEA division while continuing to focus on drug trafficking, violence, and crime reduction.” As a community partner, we are offering dance, baseball, soccer, basketball, martial arts and more to support students and their families with quality afterschool programming. Following state and local guidelines, we will continue reaching students whether it be in-person or online, and offering positive mentorship and connection through the art of dance and beyond. 

 

As we celebrate 20 YEARS OF IMPACT at the Foundation, we thank you for your generosity in encouraging young people in over 50 cities throughout the US who make the commitment to dance with the DEA Educational Foundation. Your support is invaluable as we expand our flagship youth dance program, as well as develop and increase our other youth programs across the country.
