"During these trying times it is especially important to focus on mental health and well-being, especially of girls and young women," said Chloé Arnold. "This is a time where loneliness can create a susceptibility to low self-esteem and the Syncopated Ladies 'Tap Into Empowerment' program is designed to help them find the tools to live empowered lives on and off the dance floor. It's more than dance steps, it's more than moves, it's an opportunity for girls and young women to redefine themselves and amplify their voices and self-esteem."

A guaranteed highlight of the event will be special "Sisterhood Conversations" with leaders in their fields such as Emmy Award winner Debbie Allen, Author and Philanthropist Gael-Sylvia Pullen, Filmmaker Natasha Mynhier and Dr. Gabrina Dixon, pediatrician at Children's Hospital DC.

The distinguished faculty includes Syncopated Ladies stars Chloé and Maud Arnold, Anissa Lee, Assata Madison, Pam Yasutake (Shuffle Along), Melinda Sullivan (Flying Over Sunset), Gisele Silva along with Syncopated Sista-Friends including MacArthur 'Genius' Award recipient Michelle Dorrance, Karida Griffith and Star Dixon. Dancers will also have the opportunity to explore additional dance styles with Nina Flagg (House), Ava Bernstine Mitchell (Hip Hop) and Maud Arnold (Afro-Funk).
