Shooting Stars Dance Team "Dancing to Health"

The Problem

Shooting Stars was started by 10 year old Ahriana Merryweather of Washington D.C.. She came up with idea to give children hanging around her local library a constructive activity that would help build mental and physical health.

Plan of Action

Shooting Stars uses hip hop dance to teach team work, increase self esteem, and help kids get moving to combat growing childhood obesity numbers. The link below features a short video of Ahriana battling one of this classes new students! The dosomething.org grant would help purchase a radio, buy costumes for upcoming shows, and transportation needs.
