We partner with school districts, organizations, and corporations to promote creative arts, culturally responsive content, and social-emotional support through arts education.
DANCE ARTS ACADEMY
Dance Arts Academy is the brainchild of Artist, Author and Social Entrepreneur Sakina Ibrahim. Sakina spent over a decade doing research and field work on dance and youth empowerment traveling throughout the African/Latin diaspora to research how dance empowers and transforms us? This field work supported by the Medici Foundation helped to develop her teaching philosophy and approach of connecting with her students based on culture, creativity, and Afro centered values which reach beyond race, gender, and class. Dance Arts Academy programs create space for the individual to discover themselves and begin to envision who they want to be in this world. In partnerships with schools, families, and corporations we collectively are transforming the limitations our students face by helping them to have resilience, showmanship, discipline and strong values. With that in place there is nothing one can not overcome in life.
