Sonoma County Dancers United (SCDU) is a local youth-founded non-profit organization. Our mission is to work with dance studios, schools, and organizations to promote dance and provide free dance opportunities for children and teens in Sonoma County. SCDU believes everyone should have the opportunity to dance. We strive to make dance accessible to all youth in our community regardless of socioeconomic obstacles and increase opportunities for local dancers.


Our programs introduce youth to a variety of dance styles and spark their interest in the performing arts. Through dance, participants have the opportunity to build their creativity, physical fitness, and overall mental health which are all critical to youth development.

Since inception in September of 2014, we have introduced over 500 Sonoma County children and teens to dance, awarded over 21 dance scholarships, and held our first dance community showcase.
