Brian’s dream is to teach community dance classes to youth on the Pine Ridge reservation. The program will teach youth not only about fitness and the arts, but also about life skills and suicide prevention as it provides a positive space for Pine Ridge youth to spend their time.  

"Dancing really saved me growing up and I see so many kids who need something to turn to and I want to give that to them... Dance is a beautiful outlet... It's a way to bring back our culture – to bring back the hope we had." -Brian
