Empower. Create. Transform.
Women of color are severely underrepresented in STEM fields. This is a result of gender stereotypes, a male-dominated culture, few role models, and a confidence gap perpetuated by people around them.
Our communities have traditionally used dance to release, celebrate, draw strength, communicate, and learn. We meet them where they are and show them that they belong in STEM. Combining dance with tech transforms STEM careers from unthinkable to within reach.
Dance transforms our girls into students who are curious, ask questions, take risks in the classroom, and keep going — even when it gets tough — and that confidence translates to STEM and beyond. Through our programs, girls discover how confidence in STEM subjects can be a way of life just as much as dance.
Dance creates a warm, joyful atmosphere that builds sisterhood, fosters connections, and lowers doubt, and makes for a STEM environment that is encouraging and inviting. Girls in our programs work together to choreograph their dances, design and build the technology in their performance, all while connecting with other girls and supportive adults who share their interests.
We create dance. We create in STEM. We combine the two to create electrifying performances. We inspire and encourage our girls to dream big and help them develop the skills to turn their dreams into reality — on stage, in the classroom, and throughout their lives.
How It Works
Our project-based, hands-on experiences integrate STEM and the performing arts
Girls choose dance styles and create choreography they perform for family & friends
Our programs feature inspiring STEM experiences with guest speakers and field trips
Our strong, experienced team leads each session to keep the creativity flowing
The innovative curriculum explores the intersection of STEM and dance
Our interconnected and sequential programs: Catalyze > Immerse > Launch, take our girls on a journey through their school years and beyond
The journey is designed to start with our short Catalyze programs that give girls a sense of the experience. From there, they progress to our longer Immerse programs, where they can be involved in for years. Lastly, our Launch program is for STEM From Dance participants who have graduated from high school.
We inspire girls of color to unlock their joy, power, and STEM potential across the US and beyond.
