Dancing with The Links

“To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak.” -Indian Proverb

Dance is a highly rewarding form of art. In addition to being a fun way to exercise, it also sparks creativity, boosts self-esteem, and introduces participants to new cultures.

Ever since April, our friends at the Ann Arbor Chapter of the Links have been graciously providing dance lessons to Girls Group participants. Each Saturday program has covered a different style of dance including lessons in contemporary hip hop, Bollywood, Afrobeat, Arabic dance, Detroit and Chicago style hustles, and more.

As one participant shared, “I like how we don’t just learn the dance, we also get to learn about the history and culture behind the dances.” 

The dance sessions will wrap up for participants in June, but thanks to our friends at The Links, the lessons participants learned and memories they created along the way will last a lifetime.
