When I first founded my dance organization I was amazed at how much dance changed people's lives. In the youth that I reached, I saw so many youth use dance as an escape in my community. Through this journey I knew I needed to empower and grow myself in order to continue to help the very same youth that I was committed to help. In my journey often times I have found myself as the only one of color and in the minority. Colors of dance conference was created to empower the colors of dance. If I were to close my eyes and think of dance I would see a variety of colors telling a story. It is this picture that drives the mission of colors of dance.
Colors of dance conference is about empowering dance studio owners of color as well as their staff. The business track and teaching track helps it to be a full community of empowerment and sharing each' others diversity and celebrating uniqueness!
