The mission of Free 2 Be Me Dance is to bring the joy of dance to individuals with Down syndrome regardless of where they come from or their ability to pay tuition. The program grew from one group of 12 students to five year-round classes in 3 different locations. Our dancers have performed in several shows, at the Special Olympics in Long Beach and at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games. Our goal is not only to teach dance, but also to empower the children in our programs and increase their self-esteem with challenging movements and by developing deep friendships.
Free 2 Be Me Dance is always looking for responsible and positive volunteers to help facilitate the dancers throughout the class as well as play percussion, take pictures and video taping the classes. To volunteer, click here.
