Inspire Dancers Just Like You 

"Be Wild Be You" New York Campaign

Did you know having insightful confidence helps you reach your goals?

We can actively say 80% of dancers are concerned about their skills and abilities that hold them back from developing their self-image.

We recognize as a NYC community organization, dancers of all ages experience self-esteem issues. We are also aware of how you and others like you are looking for ways to prevent this sensitivity.

The “Be Wild Be You” campaign offers the confidence you are seeking from encouraging mentors, resources to apparel and we believe we can help you achieve the inspiration you need to be successful in everything you do.


Join Our Campaign! Dance is a journey and we believe in resilience, mentoring and teamwork.

"I encourage young dancers to remember that you're always a student."

"Stay true to yourself and dance from your heart."

I wasn’t always a dancer. I was into sports as a child and was a classically trained pianist, , but my older sister was a dancer. I used to go to her dance competitions,and I became so inspired and at 11 years old...
