About the Dance Academy
The summer dance academy came at a time when the world was in an uproar due to the police brutality of Black people. Thus, we focused on social justice with songs like “Freedom” by Beyonce “Man in the Mirror” and “They don’t really care about us” by Michael Jackson. While teaching the dances, the youth were encouraged to discuss their feelings and how the lyrics to the songs resonated with them. There were mini discussions about the role they play in society. This led to the Fall social Justice book club that allowed its participants to become change agents in their community. They engaged in books about social justice and then planned an event to bring awareness and raise money for a social justice issue of their choice, which was gun violence.
