Our Vision and Mission:
Dandelion’s vision is a world where all girls discover and celebrate their best selves through community!
Dandelion Dance is an Ottawa-based non-profit that supports girls and young women from all parts of our community to connect, create and discover through dance. We offer life changing programs that bring girls of all backgrounds and abilities together to use their unique experiences in the collective creation of dance works. Creating together allows the girls to have a voice, develop empathy, break stereotypes, discover and explore their creativity and practice leadership. We extend our reach into the community by creating and distributing dance resources that focus on creative exploration and community building. We offer workshops for social workers and educators so that they may develop the skills they need to build more connected communities through dance.
