Ignite Dance Workshops organization is an effective and innovative community advocacy for youth, by making available in- and after- school dance education course study and performance opportunity. Our mission is to inspire in youth interpersonal life skills of grace, joy, athleticism, self-exploration, and that unique freedom to learn, engendering responsibility to self and others. Ignite targets both Arts and Physical Education.
Since the outset of our first offerings, Ignite has actively initiated, instructed, and ensured dance education programs to students of different gender, culture, and economic status, engaging a process of learning that broadens the students experience and stimulates creativity. Ignite offers a signature curriculum framed by a definition of artistic literacy as established by the California Visual and Performing Arts Standards, and provides top professionals in the dance industry to instruct and mentor, acknowledging the profound impact of arts education for youth.
