Stories of Changed Lives

Posted on: November 30th, 2011 by Sarah Maltrud

At BNC, we believe that dance belongs to everyone. Our community programs  are designed with the individual in mind, creating ways in which dance can be accessible and enjoyable for all regardless of age, ability, aspiration, or socio-economic status. BNC is continually working to break down needless barriers that keep people from pursuing their passion for dance.

The stories of how dance has changed numerous lives already speak for themselves.
