Dance changes lives.

We make dance happen.


Dancing makes children stronger. It gives a toolkit for life especially to kids made made vulnerable by poverty, illness or exile. It helps them develop strengths that will be key to their physical & mental development, academic and professional success. We therefore organise empowering dance programs and events for children. 

Science says it. Studies show dancing improves mood and cognitive skills, such as visual recognition and decision-making. It also reduces stress, increases levels of the feel-good hormone serotonin, and helps develop new neural connections, especially in regions involved in executive function, memory, and spatial recognition. 

Help us use and celebrate dance as a source for joy and a catalyst for children and young adults to shape a brighter future.

The What Dance Can Do Project is a Zurich-based non-profit organisation. We believe dance changes lives and that all children should have access to music and to dance. We raise funds to bring dance to vulnerable children and young adults. We advocate for the change that dance can spark by sharing the stories of dancers.
