2020 Black History Continues With Us

Mindful Arts Dance Academy is a black woman owned, holistic youth arts education program; specializing in strengthening the black community as a whole through family friendly events, a variety of programming, community building with black owned small businesses and much more. Prior to the COVID-19 we were working on a 2020 Spring Fundraising Festival to bring a holistic health experience to all of Philadelphia and beyond. Not only was our fundraising festival cancelled, but programming was cancelled as well. 

Our founder and director, Desiree Thomas, is a single black mother seeking assistance to allow her vision to continue to spread to the masses. She has since orchestrated a FREE virtual Health Festival for her youth and others to join to heal together and spread health and wellness awareness to all during the pandemic.

Raising these funds means that our youth will have quality equipment to use and excel at their sport, scholarships for youth who cannot afford otherwise, possibility to hire transportation services for working parents who need assistance, a home base for our programming and continuing to build a strong coaching team to raise leaders of tomorrow!

We at MAD Academy return great gratitude to all of our donors and supporters in this crazy time of need to thrive and conquer for the generation growing amongst this crisis. Thank you for your help no matter how big or small. Feel free to connect and visit our website at mindfulartsdanceacademy.com to learn more and join the FUN!
