Using dance culture as a platform for self-empowerment for youth in underserved communities.
Everybody Dance Now! (EDN!) is on a mission to make dance accessible - culturally, financially, and physically - by providing weekly on-site youth classes across the country. We provide a safe, environment to develop a creative voice. We believe giving all children access to high-quality arts education will better our world.
Our year-long dance curriculum:
3rd Annual Day of Movement
In April, Everybody Dance Now! Santa Barbara held their 3rd Annual Day of Movement with masterclasses, community performances, and a 2 vs. 2 hip hop dance battle! Guest artists include Cebo, Katalyst, Tinelle, DJ Sparx, and more!
America's Best Dance Crew
Watch the pivotal moment in EDN!’s history when the organization was featured on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew and was propelled to expand nationally. The Season 5 champions taught 100 EDN! students, and the show awarded EDN! $10,000 to grow.
Straight from the Innovators
EDN!'s Executive Director (Kunle) and National Program Director (Kelli) are in the process of filming interviews and tutorials with hip hop innovators to then inspire our students. The videos will connect students and teachers to the roots of what they learn and teach every week.
