Oklahoma Youth Dance Connections will transform the lives of young individuals through a unique approach to teaching the artistry and athleticism of ballroom dance. Students will improve balance, grace and physical fitness in a partnered dance setting that builds self-esteem and teaches respect for the opposite gender. The natural appeal of partner dancing will be taught in a fun environment that makes an active lifestyle a lifelong habit. Our approach will emphasize the cultural history associated with the various dances during the lesson and again with online exercises, thus promoting a global perspective and cultural sensitivity. Other examples of topics from dance lessons that will be reinforced on our student website page will include music appreciation, sports ethics and social etiquette. We will offer premier ballroom dance instruction and expect all committed students to achieve excellence. We Board members know, having experienced for ourselves, that ballroom dancing will open a new world to young people. It is well known that ballroom dance builds confidence, reduces high risk behaviors, and increasing academic achievements in youth. The harsh reality is that Ballroom Dance lessons are not affordable for our youth. Therefore, we will use all revenue exceeding expenses to offer scholarships. Not only will we improve the quality of life for the individual students they will grow into confident Oklahoma citizens with a world perspective and healthy lifestyle ready to meet future challenges with a creative mind set.
