We are Non-Profit

HappyFeet Dance Company is a Texas-based non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation founded by Chinese dance instructor and choreographer, Ms. Min Luo.

HappyFeet Dance Company is an organization of members who are the most dedicated and talented students of HappyFeet Dance School and Performance. These incredible individuals participate in public performances, as well as regional and national dance competitions annually.

Our Mission

Our mission is to share China’s cultural and ethnic diversity with the rest of the world through dance performances for the general public by providing the highest level of artistic quality.  We encourage our most dedicated members to 1) engage in community volunteer service, and to 2) participate in dance competitions.

Our Members

HappyFeet Dance Company membership is growing, and will be limited to a total of 56 members.

Why 56?”  Glad you asked!

Each member will represent one of the 56 ethnic groups by mastering that ethnic group’s unique folk dance style.

Dancers between 9 and 18 years old are welcome to join HappyFeet Dance Company by annual audition.

PVSA Information

The President’s Volunteer Service Award is the premier volunteer awards program, encouraging United States citizens or lawfully admitted permanent residents of the United States through presidential recognition to live a life of service.

HappyFeet Dance Company is an official certifying organization for the President’s Volunteer Service Award. We will create individual accounts to record and verify the volunteer hours logged by our dance company members.

All dance company members will be provided a log to document their personal volunteer hours. All volunteer service hours must be supported by a log, signed by a site supervisor. The log should include dates, hours, signature of the supervisor, and contact information for that supervisor. These logs should be submitted to HappyFeet Dance Company after volunteers complete their service.
