The Wooden Floor

The Wooden FloorOn May 14th, DMOC friends paid a visit to The Wooden Floor. As with all DMOC charitable events, proceeds went to the charity.

The Wooden Floor is a place that inspires youth to thrive. It is a safe place. It is a solid foundation from where kids can step absolutely anywhere they want. Because in this place, they find their confidence. They learn excellence. And they learn how to move. Forward.

WoodenFloor01Created in 1983, The Wooden Floor is a nonprofit organization that annually gives 375 undeserved local youth the tools to live fuller, healthier lives through a unique approach grounded in dance. They make a long-term investment in each of these young people. The young people engage in intensive dance education supported by academic and family services that change the way they make decisions, helping them to discover and pursue their potential.

Since 2005, The Wooden Floor is proud that 100 percent of their young artists graduate from high school on time and go on to pursue higher education. This is about three times the national average for their socioeconomic peers.
