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 the current situation, 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.
Mini Mix’d will be offering an 8-week virtual dance and leadership intensive online. The intensive is open to teenage girls of color, ages 14-17, 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.
