Youth Empowerment & Leadership Program

We’re proud to offer programs that extend beyond the classroom so that students can experience Life Change Ballroom when school isn’t in session.

About Y.E.L.P

Our Youth Empowerment and Leadership Program is our advanced dance program that supports the Life Change Ballroom Dance Troupe.  They perform 15-18 times/year across the metro and beyond.  This is an all-day Saturday program as well as 4 days/week in the summer when they learn the bulk of their choreography.  It is intense, but they also have fun, and it definitely keeps them active, safe and busy all summer.                            

This is a “by invitation only” program

HOW It's helping

Over the last decade, Life Change Ballroom has mentored more than 100 students through the Y.E.L.P program. These students perform around town as the Life Change Ballroom Dancers dance troupe and while their sights are set on appearing on Ellen one day, these students have access to unique mentorship opportunities through their instructors, as well as with younger students through their neighborhoods and schools.
