a stem-based summer dance Program


A place where girls can freely explore technology and the art of dance, fusing the two to create a masterpiece.


Tech-infused dance

Girls Rise Up is a three week summer experience where girls learn how to design, build, and code technological projects that compliment choreography they create. By the end of the program students will have a tech-infused dance routine they imagined, and will perform it for their family, friends, and community at our end of program showcase. Girls Rise Up is about trying new things in the STEM world, and creating a space where girls feel comfortable doing so.

Join us and spend your summer falling in love with code and dance – and the magic that happens when you bring the two together.

“I've learned that I am able to communicate with all sorts of people that I didn't think I would, and develop friendships. I met people from different backgrounds and we all collaborated on different projects easily. It gave me a glimpse of what I can be or do in college.”
