|The activities offered by Associação Dançando Para Não Dançar go way beyond classical ballet classes. The children have musical theory and practice lessons and have free access to the performances of Teatro Municipal, Teatro Leblon, movie theaters and video rooms. In order to promote social and cultural integration, the project offers guided tours to historical monuments, sights and parks, together with picnics for the children.
In return, the young dancers perform in different ballet presentations promoted by Associação Dançando Para Não Dançar throughout the year. At the end of each year, there is a big show with all the communities assisted by the project and also special guests who encourage students to keep up the hard work, giving credibility and support to the project.
Dançando also promotes charity events such as the presentation for teenage mothers in Maternidade Oswaldo Nazareth Hospital and the national vaccination campaign against polio, of Oswaldo Cruz Foundation.
