"Free 2 Be Me" Documentary

Our dear friend Jeanette Godoy, a documentary filmmaker, directed this short film about the dancers of Free 2 Be Me Dance! The film is traveling the short film festival circuit. Take a look at the beautiful documentary below.

Our spring recital video from our 2013 performance. We did a spooky Thriller dance to music from Michael Jackson!

Donate to our program! Any amount will go directly to supporting our dancers and our organization's fees such as studio rental, costumes, performance fees, paying teachers, among other expenses. We thank you for your generosity!
