rtb chapters


Raising the Barre is a youth service non-profit organization bettering our communities through dance. We provides dancers, age 11-19, with the skills and opportunities to make them compassionate, responsible, confident, and strong leaders.

Raising the Barre was started by Tiffany Henderson in 2012 in an effort to give dancers an opportunity to serve their communities through dance. While giving back to their community, the dancers’ focus shifts from a ME to a WE centered focus. Raising the Barre also offers dancers opportunities to learn valuable life skills that will make them valuable, responsible adults. Most importantly, Raising the Barre empowers young dancers, mostly female, with confidence to become the next generation of Leaders.
