Resilience Through Arts

Time is of the essence, help us raise $60,000 to make Dance of Hope’s tour dream a reality.


A single voice can create a ripple effect. Imagine what the collective power of the youth could do. And no matter where you are in the world, everyone can be a part of this global movement. 15 young performers and members of Dance of Hope from Uganda are touring the USA to share their talents and stories with other children and communities.

Resilience Through Arts

Transforming communities through Arts and Education.

Dance of Hope is Africa’s leading youth-based arts education program that explores the transformational power of music and dance, capturing the messages of hope and resilience that emanate from memorable cross-cultural stage productions and youth outreach. This program is run by M-LISADA, a non profit organization and children's center based in Kampala, Uganda and World Bridge Foundation, a 501(c)3 arts education nonprofit organization based in the United States.

Dance of Hope strives to inspire, empower and connect young people and communities globally, while raising support to provide quality education for children living in impoverished communities and improving the quality of life for their families.

Special Engagements

Off stage dynamic Experiences

Art is versatile, and music is universal. While both can be educational in ways that are unexpected, Dance of Hope performances easily translate to the broader world outside of the classroom or main stage - from a hospital lobby, living room, elderly facility, back yard, workplace, birthday parties and a plethora of other events, our exuberant young cast of performers can elevate any setting and shake the earth with their melodies, rhythms and dance.
