Changing Lives

“When you change how you think, it changes how you dance… even when the music stops.” – Kim McSwain

And one of the great things that sets Changing Lives apart in the industry is we handle the details for you. Everything from booking and scheduling artists to arranging flights and transportation is taken care of in-house so you can focus on what matters most, your dancers. Whether we come to you or your dancers come to us, our goal is to provide everything your faculty and students need to be their best.

Giving Back Lives that dance are lives that care. And we want to help young dancers look beyond their Facebook profiles to see the needs of others.

That’s why a portion of all Changing Lives’ merchandise proceeds go to reputable charities that help care for hungry, sick, or neglected children around the world – because it’s about more than just dance.

Partnership with Changing Lives is tax deductible for your studio under Educational Arts Training, and all tax documentation is provided when you book.
