Pentacle’s Community Program at Groove With Me, Inc. gives middle and high school-aged young women from Harlem and the Bronx exposure to and customized experiences in choreography and career development
Groove With Me, Inc. is a youth development organization using free dance classes and performance opportunities as a tool to instill in young women the leadership, pride, spirit of cooperation, creativity, joy and discipline needed to confront the adversity in their daily lives and throughout their future development. Pentacle provides dance classes and open conversations with program mentors, which empower participants to explore alternative paths in the arts while also developing essential leadership skills.
Since incubating the program as one of our new initiatives, Pentacle has been able to provide hands-on support to this cohort through all-female career fairs, choreographic mentorship, museum tours, artist talkbacks, and mentoring sessions with our staff and artists. Today we work with Groove With Me to continually provide new and enriching experiences to this vibrant group of young women in response to their evolving interests and needs.
