PBD OUTREACHYouth Program & Event Collaboration
Pacific Ballroom Dance’s outreach efforts are essential to achieving our mission to “build character in youth by providing a positive ballroom dance experience” to as many youth as possible. We are actively looking for ways to be involved in the community, whether it be through providing programming, performing in the community, or supporting and building relationships with other local organizations that align with our mission.
If you are interested in partnering with us in any way, having our teams perform, or teach workshops at your local event, please contact our Director of Outreach, Adam Lee.
