Beauty for Ashes Contemporary School of Dance (BFACSD) is a performing arts organization that includes a repertory dance theater company (Riddick Dance). Both build bridges of understanding through the presentation, instruction and celebration of choreographic works, focusing on under-served communities while also addressing the broader public. As an independent non-profit organization the mission of BFACSD is twofold: to educate and create in the realm of contemporary dance.
I love giving back to our youth I feel arts Saves Lives. I love to see my students development not just in the form of dance but also emotionally, mentally and physical.
There are no reviews yet
We have students come in and journal before starting any class. After that we begin to explain with them the etiquette and expecations of the class. Then we do a meet and great follow by a hug then we get to work. I usually watch the student in three classes before giving correction so I can see what they can or cannot do.
