The average dance class in the Bay Area costs $600 per year, unaffordable for many families. The goal of A Chance to Dance is to increase access to dance classes for both boys and girls of ages 10-17, who live in the Ravenswood City School District, and otherwise would not be able to participate in expensive year-round dance classes. A Chance to Dance will provide structured high quality dance instruction on a regular schedule throughout the school year, and an opportunity to perform in the spring recital. Classes will be free of charge, and bus tokens will be available to increase ease of access.
