Dance 4 Hope

Inspiring hope through the art of dance. 



Dance 4 Hope is a non profit organization that facilitates dance classes to immigrant refugee children and other underprivileged young people  living here in the United States. Through our curriculum we help at-risk youth develop artistic and therapeutic expression. This program is structured to support social, and emotional development through dance. Dance 4 Hope will help build a foundation for underserved youth by guiding them to a better future through their art.


We allow these children a safe space for artistic growth. Dance 4 Hope’s curriculum supports artistic and therapeutic expression specifically geared toward children that have experienced trauma. Through this educational program we introduce tools to help guide young people through the social, emotional struggles they face daily. Essentially we are giving hope, through dance, to kids that might feel like they have none.


We believe by introducing art forms like music and dance into these young peoples lives it will drastically change the trajectory of their future. We trust that this program will allow a child the confidence needed to succeed, despite the struggles they might face in their daily lives. D4H will open the doors for a child's future success. It’s important to realize the magnitude and privilege of using your voice and expressing your art, with this program it will allow a child to find that voice and with it build a better future filled with Hope.

“Before a child talks they sing. Before they write they draw. As soon as they stand they dance. Art is fundamental to human expression.”
