Rhythm & Motion All-Star Class and Fundraiser for Stand Tall Education Network 

Dance With Purpose

We've planned a great day for a great cause, featuring an all-star Rhythm & Motion dance class, food, and fun benefiting The Stand Tall Education Network. Stand Tall funds a school in Kampala, Uganda, that serves some of the city's most disadvantaged youth, and is staffed entirely by local educators. All funds raised directly benefit the students and the school, and are not used for travel or administrative costs. How did we choose this organization? Stand Tall has multiple ties to Rhythm & Motion and the larger ODC community:

  • Stand Tall was founded in 2009 by Nicole Schouela, former instructor and associate director of Rhythm & Motion from 1980-1990.
  • Rhythm & Motion founder Consuelo Faust's daughter Madeleine volunteered at the school in Kampala for three months last year.
  • Janice Garrett, contemporary dance instructor and co-director of Garrett+Moulton Productions, a resident company at ODC, has also worked at the school and is involved in ongoing fundraising efforts.
  • Finally, a group of Rhythm & Motion students have already pooled their resources to sponsor individual students that have graduated from Stand Tall in their continuing studies.
