Community provides us a sense of belonging and a safe place be encouraged and supported.
LETS STAND TOGETHER
We at Keystone Dance believe in supporting and empowering our community. To provide opportunities for those to grow their strengths and abilities so as to aid others to reach their fullest potential. We do not, however, believe that our scope and influence stops within the walls of our studio.
As a studio rooted and influenced by Black culture, we believe that it is our duty and obligation to be a pillar of support. We feel the effects and sadness of seeing our loved ones treated unfairly, specifically our friends and family in the Black community.
We are taking this opportunity to speak out against racism, racial discrimination and racial oppression - THIS MUST STOP! We encourage you to do your part.
Do not be afraid to speak up. Do not be afraid to raise your voice. Do not be afraid to stand up for what is right. We MUST stand up for what is right for our HUMANITY depends on it.
If you don't know where to start, please take the initiative to ask. If you have already, we encourage you to continue your efforts.
