Because Justice Matters

This past week I had the privilege of attending the first [of many more to come] dance recitals for the girls in the dance program at The Well! These girls went 'To the Stage' for the very first time, dancing for family, friends, & loved ones.

Witnessing the growth of this program has really blown my mind. I remember having this dream one night of watching children taking a ballet class in the Tenderloin. The next morning I went online to see if there were any dance classes at the YMCA or the Kroc Center, but didn't really come across anything specifically ballet oriented. 

Maybe a year after that, I was connected to Ruthie Kim. I began learning about Because Justice Matters & found out she was looking for advice on the layout of a dance studio in the building they were renovating. This building was to become the physical representation of the Women's Center { The Well } through BJM. 

From witnessing the transformation of the space {more info here}, then witnessing the incredible reception of the community to the space & vision of the dance program [50+ girls in the TL signed up!] {more info here}, & lastly, being able to witness the girls & their loved ones come together for a celebration recital was literally a dream come true. 

 

[enjoy scrolling through some of these adorable pics.]

The commitment & love I have seen the staff of women at BJM pour into the lives of these young girls is beyond words. Your faithfulness is inspiring and the work you are doing is everlasting. And a Big Thanks to Lines Ballet for hosting such a memorable first recital.
