As part of a company that values the highest quality of storytelling and entertainment for all, Warner Brothers Discovery’s contribution to EDLA! is fundamentally in alignment with their ability to bring the art form of dance to children and communities that would not otherwise participate. We could not more readily encourage other corporations to follow suit by recognizing the hidden gem that is Everybody Dance LA! for all their incredible work in fostering positivity in the next generation of creative minds.
Transforming Lives and Communities Through the Power of Dance
Its name says it all – Everybody Dance LA! wants everyone to dance. That is why the organization asks families to pay just $15 a month ($150 a year) for its After-School Program.
“If families invest a little bit in dance education, both the parent and the child feel a sense of pride and commitment to the program,” says Director of Development Pamela Bash. “But we never turn a child away due to an inability to pay.”
The true cost of the program is $1,500 a year per student. This year, EDLA!’s fundraising goal is $1.2M and they hope to raise $100,000 through The Giving List.
