Mission: The Arts have a unique ability to engage and motivate children. The mission of Kids Excel El Paso is to use its distinctive dance programs to help children develop discipline, a standard or excellence, and self-confidence that will positively impact their education and all aspects of their lives - one dance step at a time!
Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 2200 children are participating in the 10-11 school year in 30 weekly classes for the entire 4th grade.
Geographic areas served: El Paso County
Programs: In-School classes for the entire 4th grade. Kids Excel is not a pull out program.
Kids Excel captures the focus and engagement of kids at just the right time in their life. The children in this program make noticeable advances in self confidence, discipline, and relating to others. These are all traits that will benefit their final stages of development into adulthood, while making measurable gains in keeping them in school. It's really a great organization that has taken an out of the box approach to making a difference for these children.
