STEM From Dance

Log-in to Favorite

We are engineers and teachers untapping the vast potential in minority girls to become future STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) leaders by using dance's transformational power to equip them with the empowerment, skills, and character to pursue a STEM education.

In addition to enriching their STEM education through math and science coaching and intimately exposing them to the wonders of STEM through interactive activities, STEM From Dance (SFD) believes that a program that builds these girls as well-rounded individuals has the greatest potential to change their lives. SFD targets a young woman's self-esteem and character by utilizing the expressive and introspective nature of dance to positively expand their perception of themselves and the world around them, and ultimately promote growth in their higher order thinking skills, self-efficacy, motivation, and positivity. Together, STEM and dance cultivate the creativity and confidence needed to compete in the global economy of the 21st century.
