Review for Keshet , Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I chose to become an Intel Encore Fellow working for Keshet Center of the Arts because of several reasons. My initial meeting with Founder Shira Greenberg was inspiring. I was very impressed by her passion, committment and vision. The Keshet programs offer tremendous benefit to the youth of our community in many ways and their local success is now being recognized nationally. The result is that Keshet innovation in regards to dance education is now being copied as a template that is benefitting other communities thoughout the US. Dancers are getting paid, troubled youth are given new hope for a future and not returning to jail, and less-than-able bodied people are finding joy and increased health with integrated dance. I couldn't ask for a better place to contribute to as an Encore Fellow.
