Our intention is to unite a community committed to a culture of respect.  Our vision is
for each guiDANCE experience, 
online or in person, to provide an environment and a 
platform for healthy educational experiences and expressions for youth in dance.

 

We  believe it is possible to have a dance experience that lets kids be kids,
encourages community building, artistic expression and honors and promotes
 an evolution of positive elements of the dance competition & convention experience.
