HOW does dance change lives?

Our team is striving for innovation and sustainability in communities across the world through the arts. Do you want to make a difference in people's lives? Check out our volunteering opportunities. 

Through dance and music we help our students own their bodies, build self-esteem, have fun, and garner hope for a brighter future.  

We plan, implement and facilitate CLTD projects all over the world to empower youths to become strong, confident, happy, and independent individuals.

Our Mission


Changing Lives Through Dance

Changing Lives Through Dance is a non-profit organization devoted to positively impacting the lives of young people who grow up in poverty, crime, and violence. Through dance classes and mentoring we stimulate their personal development to become happy & healthy individuals

We offer dance education and create a safe container for self-growth, discovery and development. Each project first researches what the demographic of the group is, what their needs and goals are and what we can provide. Dance is used as a tool, not a means to an end. Dance provides an opportunity to girls to rediscover and reclaim their own bodies, to assure them that they own their bodies. Through dance, self-worth develops and self-esteem grows. We have fun together. We feel joy together. And that heals. That's the most important part. When we feel healed, joyful and hopeful, we feel that we have a reason to live, a purpose. Dance helps greatly with that.

Please donate to CLTD so we can help more females in their empowerment so that we can change the world. You can donate by clicking on the donate button.
