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 help introduce youth to dance in a professional setting, sparking their interest in the performing arts. As dance inspires creativity, promotes lifetime physical fitness values, and builds self-esteem, participants have the opportunity to be exposed to these benefits. 

Since inception in September of 2014, we have introduced over 300 Sonoma County children and teens to dance, awarded over 21 dance scholarships, and held our first dance community showcase.
