Founded in 1999, The Berkshire Project is interested in dance as a transformative experience. To date, over 450 Berkshire Middle school students have participated in educational dance-based workshops.
Past programs include an African Drumming and Dance Intensive tied into social studies classroom homework, as well as exciting programs in hip hop, modern, and improvisational dance and culture.
At present, we are focusing our work on a unique dance-based behavioral intervention developed specifically for at-risk teens in the Juvenile Justice System.
The Berkshire Project's Hip Hop Remix Program brings cutting edge Hip Hop Artists into the lives of disadvantaged youth in a focused and meaningful way.
Offering an innovative alternative to traditionally mandated community service, the Hip Hop Remix Program combines hip hop dance and behavioral counseling offering teens at risk what they love, while getting what they need: a new, more positive and responsible sense of self.
