Engaging youth in activities that fosters confidence, team work, sense of achievement, ambition and development of a positive social culture are the main objectives of Kidzact Association. This registered non-profit group involves youth of south western Nova Scotia in different styles of dance. The kids are coached to reach their full potential as a dancer and stage performer.
Dance has been regarded as a non-verbal form of human communication and has been an important part of human culture since the beginning of civilization. Participants of the Kidzact groups have shown a cooperation and camaraderie that is independent of race, sex or social status.
Kidzact promotes a shared set of values, goals, attitudes and practices that characterizes the organization. Each member signs a contract to remain drug, alcohol and tobacco- free. The kids take ownership in the performance product that is offered to the public in a family show of high energy dance routines including acrobatic tricks of the breakdance style which has proven to wow audiences of all ages.
Every child has a different learning style and pace. Each child is unique,
not only capable of learning but capable of succeeding.
