Com(Passion). Community. Creativity.

Center Stage For Change was inspired by the amazing talent and passion we have seen in youth. Center Stage believes that this talent has to be brought out, shared, and celebrated with the rest of the world. We see what creativity, dance, and expression can do for children and teens, and we believe everyone deserves to have this experience. We also believe that everyone has their own, unique self-expression and that this can be celebrated in a community where they feel safe and welcomed. 

Center Stage sees the value in youth. We welcome all youth to our programs because we see the value they bring to us and other children and the inspiration we can give to their lives.

Located in NY and NJ, Center Stage for Change gives youth in NYC and NJ the opportunity to showcase their exceptional talents in the performing arts, while also giving them the platform to create a noticeable change in their very own communities. The program offers students affordable hip-hop dance classes and an opportunity to take part in service-learning activities. 

This can be anywhere from building a garden or a playground, implementing something in their schools, raising money for educational purposes, or supporting a non-profit’s mission they believe in. 

Center Stage hopes to one day open it's own studio where students can have a place that truly feels like home.
