Human Capital Provider Spotlight

Youth Development - Dance Institute of Washington (DIW)

DIW’s 25 participants from Park Morton performed in the annual Spirit of Kwanzaa show at THEARC. The show was held December 16-18, 2017. DIW was delighted to entertain several Park Morton families in addition to the DC community at-large. This was a great and successful cultural arts production--celebrating the principles of Kwanzaa through dance, poetry, music and more. It gave participants a chance to perform and learn at the same time, as they worked with professional artists throughout the program. Dancers were able to train with professional guest artists and showcase their talents. Participants also learned about the meaning of Kwanzaa and how it could relate to their current lives and families. 

DIW hosted a recruitment session on the Park Morton property in the local community room on December 22, 2017. Light refreshments were served and residents were able to fill out registration forms for the 2018 program onsite. Parents were able to discuss with DIW faculty and staff the areas of need for their children and families and learn how DIW could design the program to meet their needs. This was a very successful event as DIW now has a total of 19 new enrollees ready to participate.
