Our Mission

The Wooden Floor long term vision is to break the cycle of poverty through generational change by transforming the lives of youth in low-income communities through the power of dance and access to higher education.

Our goal is to teach young people what it takes to succeed in school and in life.

Our mission is to empower low-income youth to strengthen self-esteem, self-discipline and sense of accomplishment through dance, academic and family programs. We currently provide services across two locations in Santa Ana, CA, and through our licensed model in Washington, DC.
