Dancing Grounds (DG) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that brings inclusive and accessible dance programs to New Orleans' residents of all ages and backgrounds. Working at the intersection of arts, education, and social justice, we use dance as a vehicle for developing young leaders, inspiring health and wellness, and advocating for social change. Our work is guided by a set of core values: equity, racial justice, integrity, relationships, learning, collaboration, abundance, and joy. With youth dance companies, summer camps, and the annual Dance for Social Change Festival, Dancing Grounds create safe and inclusive spaces in which the lived experiences of youth are truly valued and their unique creative talents are recognized, developed, and celebrated. We also host the most comprehensive adult dance programs in the city.DG has become a driving force for arts and education in New Orleans and a hub for the local dance community. Since 2012, we have served over 3,000 youth, 5,000 adults, and countless audience members.

Dancing Grounds presents its second Annual Youth Showcase featuring young artists from its 2015–16 school year programs.

The showcase will include a Hip Hop and Modern dance performance by DG Youth Company, Hip Hop performances by the Arise Academy middle school boys' and girls' classes, and original dance films by Akili Academy dance students.
