Bringing STEM to Center Stage
STEM From Dance is transforming the STEM field by empowering girls of color with the know-how, experience, and confidence to dream big in STEM — all through the power of dance.About Us
Our PurposeThe STEM field includes some of the most high-impact jobs in the world and we’re working to show girls of color that STEM is for them. Girls of color rarely see people like them in STEM fields.
We are on a mission to end race and gender disparity in STEM. According to the National Science Foundation, 29% of people employed in STEM fields are women, while Black, Indigenous, Hispanic, and Latina women make up just 4.87%.

Our communities have traditionally used dance to release, celebrate, draw strength, communicate, and learn. Combining dance with tech transforms STEM careers from unthinkable to within reach.
Dance transforms our girls into students who are curious, ask questions, take risks in the classroom, and keep going — even when it gets tough — and that confidence translates to STEM and beyond.
Dance creates a warm, joyful atmosphere that builds sisterhood, fosters connections, lowers doubt, and makes for a STEM environment that is encouraging and inviting.
We create dance. We create in STEM. We combine the two to create electrifying performances.
We are honored to be on the journey with girls across the US as they expand their horizons and dance toward a radiant future.
