Founded by Tracy Straus in 2000, Celebrate The Beat was initially an outreach program for the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. In 2004, after witnessing the profound impact of her efforts, Ms. Straus decided to dance her way to independence, registering Celebrate The Beat as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Celebrate The Beat is proud to collaborate with Associates of National Dance Institute in teaching exchanges and to share best practices in dance education. All dance programs and techniques utilized by Celebrate The Beat are inspired by the award winning National Dance Institute.
