Leaders with Rhythm will teach students rhythm, leadership, teamwork, and social skills. Each class will start with a circle group talk, COSU (Circle of Support and Understanding), and different topics will be facilitated, followed by dance class teaching the fundamentals of breakdance and breakdance history. There will be homework goals from the dance lessons and circle talk topics. During the last week of class we will be hosting a dance event to showcase our students and this will be our marker of completion. Youth are encouraged to invite others to join the class.
Goals for the program:
1. Teach teens how to have healthy communication
2. Increase engagement with other students
3. Build and promote a culture of dance with healthy discipline
4. Establish a group of leaders who can influence peers and the community
