Welcome to A Chance To Dance!

A few words about our story...


When dance teacher Kim Smith was unable to find a program for her differently-abled daughter, she combined her love of teaching dance, her determination to give all children the opportunity to express themselves artistically, and  her conviction that through Reagan's Wish, a charity inspired by Kim's daughter, she could give every child a Chance to Dance.

The TODAY Show featured us!

Southern Living also made a video about our amazing dancers...

Here are a some of our wonderful families and a message from our founder, Kim.  

"We want to inspire people ~ we want someone to look at us and say because of us they didn't give up." 

-Kim Smith

Reagan is an eight-year-old little girl with autism who just wants to be free to be herself and dance in a place where she feels safe and happy. Her mom decides to start A Chance to Dance, a class where all children are included. Based on the true story of the North Carolina dancers who are showing the world that they are not limited by their diagnoses, this book shows you just how much children can accomplish when they're given a chance and treated with kindness.
