The National Girls Self-Esteem Program

Giving Tuesday

Tis’ the season for giving!  Here at The Girls Self-Esteem Program (G-SEP) and NJC Dance we are “Ho Ho Hopeful” that you will donate to our youth and family outreach programs and services.

This season we are raising funds for our “Raising the Barre” community dance outreach program.  The program provides dance scholarships to children and deserving adults in underrepresented communities.  From our Dance With Me infant and parent classes, to ballet and tumbling for kids, our Seniors Keep It Moving students in Sacramento and Oakland need your tax-deductible donation for scholarships.   

Under the umbrella of the Girls Self-Esteem Program NJC Dance has become known for our yearly  signature productions of The Nutcracker in Oak Park and Nutcracker in Oakland. Our updated version of the sometimes stale Nutcracker Ballet, is a soulful adaptation of the story, set in modern times with a diverse cast and dance styles. 

The Nutcracker in Oak Park is the largest fundraiser for our dance and youth outreach program. 

As you make your tax-deductible donations this 2017,  we ask you to donate to our youth and family outreach programs.  Make your seasonal donation one that keeps giving year round.
