Our after school programs are designed to be

  • Sequenced and focused

  • Fun and engaging

  • Effective in building confidence and awareness

 After school programs run 4 to 8 weeks in length, in an effort to build rapport between the facilitator and students, create positive expectations, and build on our developed skills week after week. Below are listed a few options for after school programming, however, we are happy to create content specific programs based on your students needs. Please contact for more details. 


Here, we create a safe space for kids to come by after school and let loose through free-form dance. Each week we will have a focus topic, where we spend time opening and closing the session with a short discussion or game based on the topic. Topics will range from self-esteem, to bullying, to communication, to passion projects and goals and dreams. The bulk of the session will be spent dancing, playing, having fun, moving and grooving! 

This program is intended to encourage participants to feel comfortable letting go of expectations and rules, and simply moving to the beat however they feel it. With an attitude of acceptance, inclusion, and encouragement, we want everyone to feel welcome and supported in this space to show up as they are and express how they feel. After school dance parties, no better way to unwind after a long day!

In this program, we will explore a different theme every week; from confidence, to self-awareness, self-respect, body image, positive peer connections, self-love, mindfulness, positive communication, and many more! We use a combination of movement based activities, dance parties, games, and discussions to truly develop our empowerment and belief in ourselves! Over 6 weeks, we will get to know each other as group, form positive friendships, and support each other to become the best version of ourselves. 

This is a fun way for young girls to explore movement in a safe space, make new friends, and grow their confidence in knowing they can do whatever they set their hearts and minds to!
