As much as it is important to provide kids a place to explore creativity, have a hobby, and make friends, it’s important to provide a place for kids to learn important life skills. As the world continues to change around us, it’s more important than ever that we take our role in the lives of young people seriously and we focus on how we can help them be their best selves. It is really important to us that we prepare our dancers for life outside the studio. Our dancers love the studio and feel safe in our space, so it’s the perfect place for them to work on life skills, too. They get to learn and grow in a place where their interests and their need for important skills intersect. We are really proud of this program we have built that provides our dancers opportunities to utilize their skills in new ways. Our assistants are learning real-world job skills at MADS, but also getting to dive deeper into an industry, place, and culture that they already love and feel safe in.
