Join in the fight against bullying. Help make a difference by participating in our advocacy programs designed to educate and inform youngsters about this pervasive issue.
Through our Dancers For A Difference program, we aim to supplement dance classes and other activities by helping provide everyone—dancers, instructors, and coaches alike—with the tools they need to combat bullying when they see it, and know just how serious an issue it really is. Bullying is now considered one of the most common forms of violence in schools today. Now you can do your part to combat it.
First comes awareness. Learn to recognize the signs of bullying and what behaviors someone who is either bullying or being bullied might display. Bullying can take many forms. It could be physical abuse, verbal intimidation, cyber harassment—you name it. Then, feel empowered enough to take action. If we stand by and do nothing, the problem continues.
By standing up and getting involved—either when we see someone getting bullied or are experiencing it ourselves—is critical for stamping out the problem. Sometimes, all it takes is one person to get the ball rolling, a philosophy encapsulated in our Dancer's Creed:
"As a member of Just For Kix I agree to be an advocate against bullying. I will not partake in any form of bullying, both inside and outside the dance studio.I promise to take action whenever I witness bullying. I am a DANCER. I make a difference."
We hope you'll take the creed, learn more about Dancers For A Difference, and wear the Just For Kix logo with pride as we join together to take on this important issue.
