Everybody Dance Now! is a youth-run nonprofit organization that provides free, weekly dance programming. We are dedicated not only to inspiring our students through positive outlets that promote healthy and active lives but also to empowering our young leaders as agents of social change. Everybody Dance Now! offers free hip-hop dance programming to youth who would otherwise lack the funds, transportation or parental support to access dance classes. Committed to its values of consistency and reliability, EDN! offers classes every week throughout the year. Our class sites include locations such as low-income apartment complexes, after school programs, homeless shelters, and local schools.
Measured to America's own standard, 2.1 percent of the population lives in poverty. The percentage of children growing up in poverty is 16.7. Underprivileged families are even less inclined to spend their precious money on leisure time, this concludes that children of this category are not able to express themselves and their creativity in groups together with other children.

We provide weekly street dance programming to young people throughout the country who would otherwise not have access to such opportunities. Through our year-long program, we address risk factors in the lives of underserved youth; contribute to the growth and diversification of the arts and entertainment economy; and help increase school engagement and career success for youth of low-income communities. We have served over 18,000 youths since we started and provided over 350 hours of free dance classes each month.
