Update 9.1.2020

Thanks to the success of our first series, Mini Mix’d will be returning to the fall to offer another 8-week virtual dance and leadership intensive online! If you are interested in having your child participating, register today at

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and shelter in place orders, all of our weekly programmings have been affected including the cancellation of all community engagements and performances.

In response to shelter-in-place, Mini Mix’d have transferred all learning sessions and curriculum online. With over 6 weeks of this order and who knows how much longer, teens are finding it really challenging to cope and manage. Adolescent rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are increasing due to social isolation, and are feeling the loss of connection and lack of motivation.


The intensive is open to teenage girls of color, ages 13-18, located anywhere in the U.S., and at absolutely NO COST! All guest teachers have graciously volunteered their time. The VDL Intensive was created and organized by Mini Mix’d founder and director, Jenay Anolin who felt the importance of this type of youth engagement program to cope and an opportunity to express during this difficult and uncertain time.

Any donations will be kindly accepted. All proceeds will go towards:

  • Help fund our guest artists

  • Provide gear for teen participants

  • Assist in the expanding and replicating of the VDL program beyond 8 weeks.
