The Wooden Floor’s board and staff began exploring ways to leverage our successful outcomes locally and nationally after an ambitious strategic vision was set in 2009 to deepen our work with youth most in need. We know our approach to creative youth development works, lifting under-served children to their full potential through the power of dance and access to higher education.
