The ShEmpowered™ Leadership Dance Camp combines movement creatively with the richness of Afrikan traditions and contemporary leadership practices. We introduce Indigenous Afrikan principles and practices integrated into the framework of movement.
Through the ShEmpowered™ Leadership Dance Camp girls grades 4-8 participate in fun activities that encourage critical thinking, problem solving, working as a team, inquiry & reflection. Girls explore ways in which elements of African dance techniques can be used as tools for empowerment as they lead and navigate through life.
We believe girls can begin the process of reclaiming their identities, thoughts and behaviours in a world that often demoralizes their very existence through movement. ShEmpowered™ Leadership Dance Camp provides access to the social significance of indigenous dances that increase confidence; enhance the ability to express thoughts and feelings; self awareness and greater willingness to take risks.
