“Take the Lead Dance project is a nonprofit arts education foundation that aims to enrich the lives of youth in Philadelphia through a social dance experience. Highly qualified dance instructors visit students in their classrooms twice a week for 10 weeks, teaching them social dances such as bachata, merengue and even line dance. Students showcase what they’ve learned at the end of the 10-week experience with an assembly for their classmates, peers, teachers and families. Bodine High School for International Affairs is proud to welcome Take the Lead Dance Project into our school to work with our freshmen for the third year in a row – all thanks the generosity of the SEL Innovation Awards Grant.”
