"Choose DANCE" (official trademark) - An after-school program for under-served communities that encourages teens and youth (K-12) to choose dance over drugs, alcohol & other detrimental addictions & behavioral patterns such as bullying, cutting and eating disorders. Within this program, we encourage the youth to choose healthier lifestyles, positive behavioral choices, and being a leader in their communities by re-directing any angst they may be experiencing in their life challenges as they go through growth and maturity. We reward with positive reinforcement and goal oriented paths. Did we also mention there is a lot of fun dancing and expression coupled with outreach performances to help spread the "good news of good choices." (official trademark)
Ms Noelle Andressen crafted this intensive and creative program curriculum in with input from and in collaboration with early childhood educators, her students, and ran a pilot test-run through Parks and Recreation. It was well received by the community and is on its way to many locations near you.
