More than just a dance troupe… we are a family!!
We can tell you all about our unique, one-of-a-kind youth programming, but it is much more meaningful to hear it directly from our students. Below are some testimonials from past youth performing group members, many of which continue to contribute and participate in the program!
“Its more than dance classes, we learn about life and ourselves.”
“I never had a role model growing up and now I am one. I absolutely love helping others. Especially those who have had a rough childhood like me.”
“I’ve become more open and learned how to push myself more to be me.”
“Looking back on it, I realize I didn’t know who I was and I didn’t trust others to help me. transcenDANCE helped me find myself, identify what I needed, and taught me how to take care of myself. I hadn’t realized how alone I was until suddenly I had closer friendships than I had ever had in school or other dance groups.”
“I’ve learned how to not be ashamed of what I love to do.”
“transceDANCE has given me time and the experience to understand and love myself.”
“I look back and see so much progress I know I am proud of. I see how much we have succeeded as a whole and as individuals.”
“I have met new friends and my relationships with other peers as well as community has been positively affected.”
“I enjoy dancing with transcenDANCE because it’s a place where I feel myself; it’s my second home and I don’t have to hide who I am.”
