National Recognition for Everybody Dance!
In November 2014, The Gabriella Foundation’s Everybody Dance! program received a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Awards from First Lady Michelle Obama. Awards are given to outstanding after-school programs that exemplify how arts and humanities programs outside of the regular school day enrich the lives of young people by teaching new skills, nurturing creativity, and building self-confidence.
“You teach kids more than just skills in the arts and humanities – you light a fire in them; you help them grow emotionally and socially. And as all of you know, that has an impact on our kids. Not just their success in the arts and in the humanities, but their success in school and life.”
– Michelle Obama
