Mission Statement

Dance Brigade's Youth Program's goals are to provide high quality dance classes to the children of San Francisco in a non-competitive, socially aware environment. We believe that the arts enrich the life of the student and family and builds community through cultural awareness. Our students are encouraged to become technically proficient and at the same time build self-esteem, cooperation, leadership skills AND HAVE FUN! We also provide wonderful performing opportunities and all children are encouraged to perform. In order to achieve these goals we provide financial aide and scholarships to insure the most culturally and economically diverse attendance. We ask the parents to respect the financial aide opportunity and to donate generously to the program if a family is financially able.

Our youth program and the Grrrl Brigade are sponsored in part by The Kimball Foundation, Sam Mazza Foundation, Walter & Elise Haas Fund, The San Francisco Foundation, The Bothin Foundation, & Crescent Porter Hale Foundation, our generous families and the in-kind donations of our talented staff.

Dance Mission is accepting interns to work in our Youth Program. Please click here for more information.
