Everybody Dance Now! is a national 501(c)3 nonprofit organization using dance to inspire, educate, and unite young people. 

WHO WE ARE

Everybody Dance Now! is a national nonprofit organization that provides weekly hip hop and street dance programming to young people throughout the country who would otherwise not have access to such opportunities.

WHY DANCE?

EDN! utilizes the popularity and cultural history of hip hop to engage a broad, diverse audience and close the opportunity and achievement gaps that disproportionately impact quality of life for low-income residents and communities of color. 

We promote equity, empowerment and healing through arts and learning. Through our year-long program, we address risk factors in the lives of underserved youth; contribute to the growth and diversification of the arts and entertainment economy; and help increase school engagement and career success for youth of low-income communities. 


A YOUTH-LED INTIATIVE

EDN! was founded in 2005, by then 14-year old Jackie Rotman and has since expanded with the talent of young, enthusiast leaders. Today it is a thriving national nonprofit serving youth in multiple cities across the nation.
