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.

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 and the volunteers at DAHT are enthusiastic, effective, and visionary promoters of dance and health. I have been on the Board at DAHT for 2 years and have seen first-hand the real impact the organization is making in the Phoenix-area community and I believe there are big things ahead for this group.

DHAT is a progressive new non-profit with a visionary young leader Mary Lane Porter. It is deeply committed to the powerful act of dancing, and works to bring dance to multiple communities regardless of physical or economic capacities. The need to have healthy physical practices that build individuals and communities is going to become evermore essential as our nation faces this obesity epidemic. This is an organization to watch!
