Epic Dance Studios’ long-term commitment to Community Outreach is designed to provide students with a strong, creative, safe community; develop their individual talents; and to provide structure for students to achieve goals they never dreamed were possible! With support from our private and corporate sponsors, Global Link, Little Big Idea Grants, and Lippert, students receive weekly dance instruction in one of three ways:
- Free programs in alliance with Elkhart Boys and Girls Club
- Free After-school classes at select Elkhart schools.
- Need-based scholarships for our students, who progress through multi-tiered programs, including our Epic Company members.
Check out some of the ways we've been involved with our local community below!
