The Chance to Dance Scholarship Program
At Soul Connexion, we believe that all children deserve an opportunity to explore their creativity and pursue an energetic lifestyle by participating in a variety of sport, dance, wellness and arts opportunities. Taking part in healthy activities such as these have been proven to improve self-esteem, and encourage today’s youth to make conscious healthy choices throughout their lives.
For this reason, we have developed Chance to Dance, a scholarship program for girls in Calgary’s Northwest and surrounding area. Chance to dance provides free dance training and mentorship to girls aged 6 to 15, who meet certain eligibility requirements. Founded in 2010 by Cara Poppitt, this program provides up to three years of support toward an eligible dancers tuition, as well as goal setting workshops, and personal coaching.
Children who participate in physical activity generally have more confidence, and are more likely to achieve their goals. Help us to guide Calgary’s youth toward better opportunities by supporting this unique Calgary community initiative.
Our Goal is to provide healthy and creative opportunities for Calgary’s youth, especially those who cannot otherwise afford to register for children’s recreational programs.

Making a difference one dancer at a time by improving quality of life for Calgary’s youth.
We believe that in order to build a sense of community within our studio we must help those in surrounding neighbourhoods. Soul Connexion is dedicated to sponsoring underprivileged children with full dance tuition that live in our own community. In North West Calgary there are more than 10,000 families that live in subsidized homes. These families have children that would not normally have the opportunity to participate in classes. Soul Connexion sponsors three children each year and with every corporate booking received, another child is sponsored. Our goal is to make a difference one child at a time.
If you would like to sponsor a child please call 403.567.0070 for more information.
CHANCE TO DANCE - Creating sustainable growth for under privileged girls, one step at a time.
The Chance to Dance mission statement is to provide less fortunate girls in Calgary with the opportunity to be inspired through dance, yoga and fitness. The Sponsorship program will focus on creating sustainable growth in the lives of young girls in the Calgary community who may not otherwise have the opportunities by providing each sponsored girl with a three-year program dedicated to dance, yoga, fitness and goal coaching.
The Scholarship program will not be able to fulfill its mission and goal of fulfilling dreams of young girls in Calgary without the generous support of sponsors and partners. As a result, Chance to Dance is looking to form strong partnerships that can be long lasting and beneficial to both parties. More importantly you will help us change young lives and set them up for success in the future.
As a sponsor, you and/or your corporation would be recognized the following ways:
