“It’s impossible to be an artist and not do something that reflects the issues, the pain, and examine possible solutions to the senseless violence and loss of innocent lives we are experiencing everyday. FREEZE FRAME...Stop the Madness is a lens through which a balanced conversation can be experienced and a real “call to action” will be heard.”
DEBBIE ALLEN
 

The Debbie Allen Dance Academy is a nonprofit organization that has been in existence since 2001, and is dedicated to producing family entertainment, championing youth education, and expanding the reach of dance and theater arts for young people. The entire Debbie Allen Dance Academy family has made it their mission to make dance a meaningful experience for the over 400 children enrolled annually – with over 80% of these children on some type of financial scholarship. 

The Debbie Allen Dance Academy family, with the support of a long list of donors and sponsors, provides the arts to the young and the elderly as a catalyst to change their lives for the better. FREEZE FRAME... Stop the Madness will shine a spotlight on a real story, giving a voice to young people and their families whose zip code has been cornered by issues of gangs and gun violence.
