Mission Statement

Dance Another World, an English language immersion program taught through dance, serving non-native English speaking students from lower socioeconomic areas. In addition to dance and English, students learn to respect their bodies, minds and communities. Dancing exercises can stimulate visual thinking and perceptions while enhancing observation and self-expression. Students gain control of their bodies, their feelings and gain confident communication skills that can assist them in other aspects of their lives.

Description

Founded in 2014, Dance Another World is an English language immersion program taught through dance. Serving non-native English speaking students from lower-socioeconomic areas, students learn to communicate through creative movement.

Dance Another World works with organizations such as Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE) in the Austin Independent School District and with Cedars International Academy Charter School. In our AISD programs, we assist students with homework help and offer a healthy snack provided by our nutritional sponsors, Whole Foods Market. Our program touches communities in every part of Austin, helping to provide a safe environment for girls to learn English and build confidence.
