Support JAE’s Work with Youth in Lawrence

This summer, JAE is partnering with Izizwe Dance Studio to offer a summer dance program in Lawrence, MA.

We are offering this program free of charge to all participants, relying on the support of our community to do so. Please donate so that we can give dancers an amazing summer dance experience.

For the last decade, JAE has offered a Summer Institute in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Unfortunately, political and social realities have prevented us from making that happen his year. We are so sad to not be able to work with our amazing students in Haiti this year, but also excited to take this opportunity to work with Izizwe and the Lawrence community.


Summer Institute by the Numbers:

  • $1250 - cost for a student to participate in the 2 week program

  • 80 - target number of students

  • 2 - we are running 2 programs (one for teens, one for kids) for 2 weeks each
