About STEM From Dance

STEM From Dance influences girls of color to pursue STEM by using dance to attract and prepare them. Many minority girls from low-income areas don’t pursue careers in STEM. It is not because they are unable, but because they need awareness, confidence and experience.

We get students excited about the many creative and technical jobs available, providing awareness and encouragement to explore STEM.
