How everybody dance! Impacts Graduates

Our graduates are the best ambassadors for the lasting impact of the Everybody Dance! program. Here we share Heidy Garcia’s story, a student who joined us 12 years ago and is now attending USC!

Meet Heidy Garcia!

Heidy started in the everybody dance! program about 12 years ago. She is the first in her family to go to college and will be attending USC this fall. Her dream job is to become an architect and to be in “a job where I’m happy and giving my all every day.”

One of the important things that she learned about herself while in high school and at everybody dance! was to balance her life. Her sophomore year of high school was her most challenging with ballet, marching band, and AP classes. She thought about quitting everybody dance! but she gained confidence in herself to keep going and to balance her classes. Her determination in dance kept her motivated in school.

One of her most unforgettable experiences in everybody dance! was the flash mob at the Nokia Center downtown. It was pouring rain that day. I was pretty small. I remember I was nervous, but was excited to be dancing with the older students.”

“everybody dance! gives our community access to the arts at an affordable price. Not all parents can afford to have their children in a dance academy. Because my daughter chose dance as a form of extracurricular activity, she was able to get into one of the top private schools of California "
