Dance is for everybody.
I believe that the dance came from the people
and that it should always be delivered
back to the people.
- Alvin Ailey
We are a Community-based, Non-profit Arts Organization
Dance & BodyWorks, Inc. is a community-based 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization providing quality dance education and opportunities for children and adults in the Washington Metropolitan area since 1998. Our mission is to provide dance education to all people interested in learning and loving dance. We are guided by the belief that dance is for everyone. Each person can reach his or her potential given a disciplined and nurturing environment and dedicated and competent staff that always has the student's best interest in mind. We seek through continued excellence in teaching and community outreach to expand awareness of the great benefits to the mind, body and spirit that dance has to offer. Dance & BodyWorks is directed by Sandra Blackman.
Greetings and salutations, Family! As you know the Dance & BodyWorks Performance Groups went to Orlando for the Tremaine Competition Finals. Congratulations are in order because we came away with three trophies and cash prizes for Hip Hop, Jazz and Best Backstage Etiquette competing against over 50 other dance schools! We are VERY proud of our girls! The experience was invaluable, we learned a lot and we had a wonderful time. A very special THANK YOU to all of our dancers' parents and guardians because without your support, this trip would not have been possible. Check out our new "Ensemble Gallery" page for pictures.
