The non-profit I Choose Dance, organized by Fred Astaire Dance Studios - Warwick, is back in action this year!

WARWICK, R.I. - eMusicWire -- The non Profit "I Choose Dance" is back in action.
The mission of this non-profit is bringing Ballroom Dancing to High-School Students in Rhode Island for free. Every week, volunteers from the Fred Astaire Dance Studios - Warwick travel to Cranston East High School to teach students Ballroom Dance. The goal is to allow students to experience the benefits that dance has to offer. It creates a community in the school and allows these teenagers to learn not just the skill of dance, but communication, partnership, team-work and of course an exposure to arts.
Founded by Emily Cortez, co-owner of the Fred Astaire Dance Studios - Warwick, the non-profit first came into existence in 2019. Due to Covid, the in-school teaching had to be suspended for quite some time, but the organization still held gift-basket drives to support the student body in need of school-supplies.
