Dance-a-Thon Information


Cici Blanchette (1999-2019) pursued artistic inquiry through dance, music, film, photography, and writing. She loved international travel, understanding diverse cultures, and advocated for social justice through all her creative expression. 

Created in her memory, the Camille “Cici” Blanchette Memorial Scholarship honors teens who want to explore artistic expression through dance. The scholarship is available to teens to support their participation in any Young Dance program. BIPOC teens and those who have an interest in diverse areas of art are encouraged to apply.

Young Dance Values:

  • Young people are artists with something important to say.
  • Social justice is an embedded component of our classes and organization.
  • Every body is capable of creative expression.
  • The creative process is a model for civil discourse.
  • A healthy somatic dance practice is grounded in a developmentally appropriate curriculum.

“…I learned to channel my energy and share my emotions. I learned to love my body for how it can learn and what it can express.”

-Emily Winkler-Morey
