Using Dance to Prepare Minority Girls for STEM

It would seem to make sense that anyone needing extra help in the areas of science, technology, and mathematics (STEM) would naturally want to do all they could to bone up in those areas. Extra classes, tutoring, seeking out a mentor would all prove sound strategies.

So why are some minority women looking to the world of dance to help themselves better compete in STEM fields?

A statement on the web site of Stem From Dance provides the beginnings of an answer: "Most minority girls from low-income areas don’t dream of being scientists or engineers. It isn’t because they’re unable, but because of a lack of confidence, preparation, and awareness of STEM careers."
