Our mission is to provide comprehensive dance education for all, enriching the spirit, enlivening the imagination and celebrating community.
In dance we are inspired. In dance, we grow. In dance we express ourselves. Dance can enrich a child's life in so many ways. Combining movement and music builds social, emotional, intellectual and physical skills - an essential foundation for every child which deepens their learning experiences. Yet, many children in our community would be denied these opportunities without Children's Dance Foundation. Children who have speical needs, live in poverty, or simply do not have access to the arts are at the heart of who we serve. We believe dance is for all of us...regardless of age or ability or circumstance.
CDF's Community Partnership Program brings engaging dance classes to nearly 1,000 children each week at 24 preschools, elementary schools, and social service agencies across Birmingham. Our dance curriculum provides an engaging approach to reach developmental benchmarks, reinforce academic concepts, and build self-confidence.
CDF's School Touring Program shows, Math in Motion and The Magic Circle, tour to elementary and middle schools state-wide and are presented by four professional dancers. These shows will reach 5,000 students and teachers at underserved schools this year. We also provide teachers with resource packets to help them incorporate the arts into daily academics.
CDF is a non-profit organization supported by the community. Your thoughtful donation will help ensure that more children will be inspired with healthy, positive experiences through dance.
