Dance school partnerships

Meninadança has developed a unique partnership programme for dance schools in the UK and around the world to make a difference in the lives of girls in Brazil, joining with them on a journey of hope and transformation – through dance.

Connecting worlds, changing lives

 

Build a personal, international relationship with a Meninadança safe house in rural Brazil, get to know a group of girls on the other side of the world, and share life together through dance.

 

Your dance school can make a personal contribution to our work and help girls who love to dance, but who desperately need a chance and a fresh start.

Share your news, events and dance achievements with The Pink House and they’ll share theirs with you in regular contact. Teach your students about the world and a new culture, raise their aspirations and give them an international perspective on life.
