DEA Youth Dance Program Fall Update

The DEA Youth Dance Program (YDP) has had a busy and successful fall! In September and early October, all YDP instructors went through a formal training program, we launched full programs in 15 cities and YDP students performed in their very first special event, the DEA Red Ribbon Rally at DEA headquarters. The initial feedback regarding our school kick-off assemblies and dance classes, from prinicipals, parents and students alike, has been remarkable. And, because of you, as well as our corporate and foundation contributors, we will be able to further expand to our waitlist in 2013. 

The attached pictures represent students from Carthay Elementary School in Los Angeles participating in their weekly classes and students from Drew Elementary School performing at the Red Ribbon Rally at DEA headquarters.

We are thrilled to be in the classroom working with such eager students and feel fortunate to have such dedicated dance company partners. For a full list of locations, dance company partners and contributors, please visit our website at:
