Welcome on the website of
World Children Unity Dance!
WCU-Dance = “We SEE You Dance”.
The focus of our non-profit organisation is on DANCE for YOUTH & CHILDREN.
Not to make them dance like we do, but to discover and to SEE the unique dance that's in every youngster and child!
Our team of danceteachers facilitates educational danceworkshops in schools in Belgium.We bring the world of streetchildren and fugitives into the classroom.
Every year (since 2010) we organise a dancecontest (see link contest).
All benefits go to a wonderful streetchildren project in India (and also Nepal and Peru).
Our newest project is DanceTheatreMusical SEE (an inclusion project with and for youngsters)
in which our dancetheatergroup is building towards a wonderful performance in which the youngsters and children are the stars.
...we support streetchildren in third world countries and fugitives...
...but also and not to forget "streetchildren" in our own country or neighborhood :
the children and youngsters that got stuck in 'a dead end street' and face major problems...
!give them a second Dance!
WCU-DANCE BUILDING BLOCKS:
the CHILD - the DANCE - the BODY - NATURE - the FAMILY - the SCHOOL
By dancing with the children, we build a world of multicultural global awareness and solidarity : "THE WORLD IS ONE LARGE VILLAGE" (statement by Minister of State Mark Eyskens, during his speech on October 17th 2011 at the University of Antwerp on the communicative world society)
Our keyword is Empowerment :
through DANCE and on a positive, gentle and fun way,
we let the children discover their center, core, strenght, self-esteem, abilities and dreams...
"dancing = dreaming with your feet and body "
a dancing child = a happy child
DANCING WORKSHOPS for CHILDREN in SCHOOLS
One of our 20 team members can come to your school and give a dance/yoga/creative workshop. In a playful and attractive way, our danceteacher brings the issue of street children to the attention of the kids. In this way your school can support our organisation in supporting the streetchildren.

DANCE&MOVEMENT WORKSHOPS for TROUBLED YOUNGSTERS AND CHILDREN
4 of our teammembers work together with organisations that give troubled or problem youngsters and children a home and new opportunities. We use DANCE and MOVEMENT as a powerful and soft tool to give them a positive and renewed connection with their body and inner strength.
In 2012 we worked together with YAR (Youth at Risk) and coached youngsters (youthcare).

Since beginning of 2014 we also work together with De Wissel and Centre Molenmoes (alternate dayprogramm for youngsters). (info : www.wissel.be)
