why we're here
We believe that every kid should have the chance to be a kid. Sadly, many kids around the world are forced to grow up quickly due to poverty, violence, and challenges within their families. SDM strives to give kids the space to be kids: to express themselves through music and dance, to be wild and crazy or graceful or reserved, to have a safe place to be themselves. Through music and dance kids strengthen resiliency, emotional expression, an ability to cope with trauma, and other tools that will help them thrive, yes, but they also have a chance to simply be kids, to play and sing and jump in the freedom of childhood.
