#123: The Wooden Floor Dance Company

There are few performances which are so amazing that they leave me at a loss for words. This weekend's was one of them. I'll just let you watch the videos.

This was my third year attending The Wooden Floor's annual performance at UC
Irvine's Barclay Theater. I left inspired, awe-struck and wishing that there were
more programs like this available to our youths. I highly recommend checking
out their next show.

Since 1983, The Wooden Floor has been changing lives. By integrating year-round dance training with academic assistance and family services, The Wooden Floor offers a creative alternative to youth who might otherwise fall victim to destructive behaviors such as taking drugs or joining a gang. Youth who participate in programs at The Wooden Floor gain self-confidence, improve their grades and acquire skills that help them graduate from high school and attend college at a significantly higher rate than their peers nationally.

The Results:
Since 2005, 100% of students at The Wooden Floor have graduated high school and enrolled in college - far exceeding the national average of their peers.
