With all that has been going on in our world recently, we have been forced to think about what is truly essential. Certainly family, friends and physical health top that list, as well as employment and a roof over our heads. But where do the creative arts fit into the big picture?

Some would say that the arts are not essential to daily life, as we have seen the steady decline of music, theater and art programs in schools, and the great dependence on funding for community programs by private donors. But science and history have shown that the creative pursuits of dance, music and art are incredibly beneficial and truly essential to physical, mental, and emotional well-being, and have consistently played a significant role in the endurance of the human spirit, most especially in times of hardship.

At Dance Unite, we believe in the importance of this art form, and in its power. We have seen ballroom dance transform people and in turn create change in the world. Join us in creating a more beautiful world for everyone through the art of dance!
