Our Outreach programs are transforming our community through dance education and performance.
The Steffi Nossen Dance Foundation reaches out to the community to make dance education and performances available to broad and diverse populations, including those traditionally underserved or with special needs. Participants experience dance, learn dance technique, develop self-confidence, and engage in activities that encourage focus, teamwork, and creative expression.
