The mission of Take the Lead North Carolina (TLNC) is to enhance academic, social and leadership opportunities for children through life-changing experiences, including the internationally-acclaimed Dancing Classrooms program. Through the joy of dance and music, and the power of positive role modeling, we plant the seeds of success for every child, and nurture them into confidence and community.
Since 2009 TLNC has served over 7,000 students in 25 local public, private and parochial schools. Dancing Classrooms is available to all elementary schools in the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County School system. The majority of the schools currently served by TLNC are Title I schools that would not otherwise have this transformative arts-in- education opportunity.
Take the Lead North Carolina is a locally founded non- profit organization. We are proud to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters for TAKE THE LEAD 2018, helping our community “take the lead” for children in need.
