Building Respect Through Dance

Building Respect Through Dance™ is a privately-funded program; its aim is to connect agency coordinators and local dance instructors with Bay Area school districts to offer children and teens opportunities to experience the joy and personal benefits of ballroom dance.

Please help us help our youth build strong character and social connection with others; help us help children and teens learn valuable life lessons that ballroom dance teaches: respect, cooperation, tolerance among all people. This program serves to guide students and young adults in positive directions, and to help them grow into respectful and healthy adults.

For more information or how to get involved, contact me, Adrian Flores (925) 766-8136.

Your sponsorship of the dance performance and free school programs will provide much needed assistance to school arts programs which have been decimated by recent budget cuts. The program will offer the community an art form that can be enjoyed and practiced by children, teens, parents and grandparents. Thank you for your generous donation and investment in supporting this arts program to benefit the whole community.

"The arts are not for the privileged few, but for the many. Their place is not on the periphery of daily life, but at its center. They should function not merely as another form of entertainment, but rather, should contribute significantly to our well being and happiness." - John D. Rockefeller, III
