Mental Health of young people is in the spotlight this year. A free dance school for girls in East Harlem, Groove With Me is a sanctuary for their physical and mental wellness, so they continue to express themselves and discover their capacities in a healthy environment.   Our girls face serious challenges, especially in a year like 2020 when COVID-19 had an outsized impact on their homes & communities in East Harlem and South Bronx. We offer them a place to thrive.

“It’s a place where I don't worry what people think of me … during the pandemic, school from home has been difficult and "performing" well has felt really hard … at GWM, I can be myself …”

Groove With Me, Inc. is a youth development organization using free dance classes and performance opportunities as a tool to instill in young women the leadership, pride, spirit of cooperation, creativity, joy and discipline needed to confront the adversity in their daily lives and throughout their future development. The program seeks to decrease teen pregnancy, truancy, crime, violence, prostitution, substance abuse and gang related activity by nurturing youth, building self-confidence, offering positive choices, and providing a safe place to go.
