    Mission/Vision of DA:NCE:
    Mission: To bring international awareness and education to stop the exploitation through hypersexualization of children in dance.
    Vision: To promote the art of dance and its benefits to children by creating educational materials that advocate for their safety and protection in all dance environments.
    Children deserve to learn and experience the gift of dance in safe environments that do not sexualize and/or exploit them.
    Children deserve to love dance, their bodies, and themselves.
    Children deserve to be protected from sexual exploitation.

    DA:NCE Educational Goals:
    -To protect children from hypersexualization in adult costumes, choreography and music, and to protect the art of dance
    -To create free research materials to give adults informed choices about the differences between healthy or harmful dance
    -To engage in respectful conversations about hypersexualization without shaming/demonizing adults or dance studios so that there is a path for reflection and changed perspectives
    -To communicate the hypersexualization of children in dance and its connection to the public health issue of pornography with bipartisan engagement
