Energizers After-School Club

Energizers Afterschool Club

Since 1995, the Dance Place Energizers have been learning and giving back to the local community. As with all of Dance Place’s NEXTgeneration Youth Programs, the Energizers Afterschool Club was created to help our city’s youth meet the challenges they face throughout childhood and adolescence. Our programs help children and teens grow, learn, have fun, stay healthy and make new friends.

Activities include lessons in life skills, arts & crafts, computer literacy, reading, writing, math, community service and more. Counselors pick up children at 3:15pm and 4pm from Charter Schools located on 8th Street NE.

The Energizers Afterschool Club enhances the lives of children and helps them become responsible, creative and healthy adults. Graduates have gone on to finish high school, graduate college and create their own business. Taught by Dance Place’s dedicated youth leadership staff and Dance Place interns.

Energizers meet Monday through Friday from 3:30-6:30pm at Dance Place

Applications for the 2012-2013 school year will be available around June 1, 2012. Tuition is $100 per month. Scholarships are available for families in need.
