Although we dance to become healthier and to have fun, we give back to our community. We participate in our community health and wellness activities.

Rural Education.jpg

All children need the opportunity to have sound-based educations! To deny them the right negatively affects the entire community. While fighting for my son to have a quality education so he could go to the college of his choice, I fought my rural community and the state to give adequate funding, remove the detrimental practices of missed instructions because of short and long-term suspensions, and decrease the high school dropout rate.
