Julia McCarthy - Everybody Dance Now! Claremont

Julia McCarthy, Everybody Dance Now! Claremont

Date grant awarded: 3/1/2017

“Everybody Dance Now! Claremont” is dedicated to bringing quality hip-hop dance classes to children in deserving communities around Southern California. Students explore creative movement, choreography, and musicality, and learn dance vocabulary, history, culture, and context (including the intersections of art and social justice movements).

Programming will take place at Pomona Unified public schools and provides students: additional hours of physical activity each week; educational support, youth development, and a platform to foster creative expression and appreciation of the arts; mentoring and a positive alternative to the risks and challenges of out of school time. Chapter Director Julia McCarthy and all the instructors are undergraduate students.
