Our Mission:

Empower.

Occupying only 4% of the STEM workforce, Black and Latina women are vastly underrepresented in the field. To change this, we give minority girls the awareness and preparation for a STEM education—through the creative and confidence-building aspects of dance.

Our unique and integrated approach of combining STEM and dance is based on three foundational pillars:

CREATING AWARENESS

Simply becoming aware of STEM careers can ignite a student’s interest to explore more.

BUILDING CONFIDENCE

Within our program students are more likely to ask questions, persist through confusion, and explore their intellectual curiosity.

Our Impact

Many of the students in your school are young, bright Black and Latina women, and only 4% of them will likely pursue a career in STEM. At STEM From Dance, we aim to raise that statistic with our after-school programs.

We make STEM fun and accessible through the immersion of dance.

Our Program

We use dance to empower, educate, and encourage girls as our next generation of engineers, scientists, and techies. Our students build their confidence through dance and create challenging, technology-infused performances – ultimately building the skills needed for a future in STEM.
