Our family has spent numerous years personally witnessing the power of movement, dance, and music as our son who has Asperger's Syndrome was able to overcome many obstacles of his Autism. While DAHT is still a small, young non-profit organization, the organization has provided a huge impact to numerous people through the passion and dedication of its CEO, Mary Lane Porter.

DAHT has sponsored many events and programs to provide opportunities for people regardless of their financial, mental, and physical abilities to experience the power of movement and dance. From workshops for aspiring dancers to a prom for special needs kids to educating others about the benefits of movement and dance, DAHT consistently exemplifies its mission - "To present opportunities that develop awareness of the mind and body connection through dance."

DHAT is a young organization with vision, purpose, energy and capacity. Expanding notion of who gets to dance and why it matters, DHAT is partnering to create programs for individuals living with disabilities, and finding ways for peopel with and without previous dance experience to celebrate, create, and connect through dance. Keep an eye out for this up and coming non-profit!

I've worked with this organization for a couple of years and enjoyed the programs and activities we've sponsored. The goals of this organization revolve around inclusion and healthy programs to allow anybody to experience dance and movement. Mary Lane is very talented and giving person who excels at all she does.

Mary Lane is a true one of a kind super star. She is always looking for new ways to become involved with helping her community become a better place through both DAHT and as a personal vendetta. She is hard working and DAHT is proof of that. I have personally watched changes DAHT has made in the lives of those in need and I admire her tenacity when it comes to making the world a better place through the art of movement :)

As a dance professional from Phoenix, I've had the joy of working with and dancing for DAHT. In particular, they put on an event called Arizona's Got Dance that features as MANY genres as possible in one weekend. Keeping the Phoenix dance scene diverse yet cohesive is something we've been trying to do for years and finally, DAHT has really brought us together. Thank you Mary Lane and your crew for connecting us and keeping us humble and appreciative of each other year after year at this incredible event!

Mary Lane's idea to bring dance and health together has been nothing short of transformational for all those who have been able to participate in one of DAHT's events. Her energy, passion, creativity, and drive to educate people about the power of the mind/body connection through dance is a refreshingly healthy and user friendly approach to breaking through emotional and/or physical handicaps. Under Mary Lane's leadership, she and a staff of dedicated volunteers are helping DAHT bring about change one dance at a time.

DAHT continues to find ways to help the community in Phoenix and surrounding areas. Their workshops are great and affordable, their showcase gives great dancers a forum, and their classes for those needing another voice are caring and compassionate. Even their fundraiser was fun and had a lot to offer with mini classes, dance battles and lots of auction items. With new activities all the time, those in the community should keep an eye out for what's new. Always open to new ideas, Mary Lane and her board strive to further their mission.

DAHT brings an important message to people of today and that is reminding us about the mind and body connection. In their workshops, performances and classes, their message continues to help us integrate our bodies and minds to advance the health of the individual. For those who have difficulty expressing themselves, the language of movement is another way to communicate their innermost thoughts and feelings. Their drive to pursue helping special needs children made me want to be involved financially.
