Everybody Dance Now! Santa Barbara Invites Community to Holiday Performance

In addition to bringing dancers together, other local nonprofits and organizations are invited to have a presence at the event. The annual event makes a lasting impact on the Santa
Barbara community, and specifically the underserved, low-income youth that the organization serves.

Everybody Dance Now! Santa Barbara was founded by a 14-year-old in 2005 to provide positive dance outlets for at-risk youth. It offers free or low-cost weekly hip hop dance programming to young people who otherwise would lack the funds, transportation, or parental support to access such opportunities. It offers 25 to 45 local dance classes per week at locations such as elementary and junior high schools, homeless shelters, low-income housing complexes and after-school programs.

Entry is donation based, and no one will be turned away if they cannot contribute.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
