ROAD to Zambia Foundation


Welcome to R.O.A.D

R.O.A.D, an acronym for Reaching Out And Dancing, is a project by the R.O.A.D to Zambia foundation that promotes the academically inclined dance program.

This program was originated in Cleveland Ohio to encourage students to use physical dance movements as vehicles for self expression.

Our module is designed to plant seeds of expression, strong principles and morals into the students, which allows them to express themselves effectively.

Also, students will not only have the skills and confidence to dance when opportunities arise but will learn how to use their dance skills rather to be used by them. 

Through creative expressions, R.O.A.D teaches children with ADHD and some traits of autism, through our “Dance -N -Mind” lessons; to express their feelings through the movement of dance, allowing them to break some communication barriers between parents, peers, and teachers.
