We are so excited to tell you that Dance Innovations is among the first dance studios in the country to add the brand-new, national Wingman for Dance program to our studio philosophy! Wingman inspires empathy, compassion, kindness and most importantly, acceptance of all children regardless of any perceived differences.
A Wingman is someone who always goes above and beyond to help others. Each month we will all take part in a different activity that will help us learn the important values of being a fun, fair, and inclusive group of dancers. We will be learning ways to go above and beyond for others. It is my hope that by the end of this year together we will be both a group of amazing individual dancers and also a strong inclusive community.
Wingman Core Values
Winning isn’t everything
Never shut someone down
Go above and beyond
Step up and take the lead
Don’t hesitate to contact me or one of the other instructors if you want more information about the Wingman program or have any questions or concerns.
Wingman for Dance is a program from Dylan’s Wings of Change, a foundation dedicated to the memory of Dylan Hockley, one of the first grade victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Dylan was six years old and had autism, and could be his best when those around him would be his Wingman. You can find out more at www.wingmanleague.org. Also, find them on Facebook (Wingman For Dance) and on Instagram @wingman4dance.
