The DEA Youth Dance Program is happy to be launching free dance classes for at-risk and underserved youth in schools from California to New York! We’ve had a busy summer, and look forward to a fun fall!

 

In July, DEA YDP students from Van Nuys, CA and Washington, DC performed at events for National Dance Day at both Grand Park LA and The Kennedy Center. Our dancers impressed hundreds in the crowd with their moves, and positive approach to healthy living through dance. This summer, we were also able to offer students around the country a safe and fun activity through dance workshops and scholarships to local dance studios.

 

We continue to enjoy a powerful partnership with DEA 360, a comprehensive approach bridging DEA, law enforcement, DOJ and community partners to combat heroin and opioid drug abuse in select cities nationwide. Through DEA 360, we are able to reach even more students with our message of drug abuse prevention through the art of dance. Stay tuned for exciting updates on this program!

 

Last week, The DEA Educational Foundation honored filmmaker Michael Mann with a spectacular evening at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Student dancers from Sylvan Park Elementary, under the expert tutelage of DEA YDP instructor Stephanie Reed, took to the stage with some very special guests. DEA Agents surprised the crowd by joining our young dancers in a fantastic routine, and showcasing the extraordinary support and mentorship students receive from DEA. Our teaching partner, Culture Shock LA, performed amazing choreography and treated the audience to some impressive freestyle dance.

 

We are looking forward to a wonderful fall season, bringing dance to kids across the country as an alternative to drugs and violence. Thank you for your continued support of The DEA Youth Dance Program!
