Sparkles and Spirit, Q-KIDZ 3rd Annual Fundraiser

Q-KIDZ Dance Team, a non-profit organization located in the West End of Cincinnati, performs “Sparkles & Spirit,” a vibrant celebration of strength, courage, and joy.

The Q-KIDZ Dance Team is dedicated to creating a safe space for young girls to thrive, no matter their economic situation. Marquicia Jones-Woods founded Q-KIDZ forty years ago with a single purpose: to empower youth experiencing poverty and drug related crime in Cincinnati’s West End neighborhood. What started as one woman’s effort to engage youth in positive after-school activities has grown into a nationally recognized, award-winning dance program that impacts more than 100 girls a year between the ages of four and eighteen. Q-KIDZ leverages dance as a platform to educate, nurture, and build self-esteem.

The Q-KIDZ Dance Team has received national acclaim for choreography, techniques, costumes, and overall performance. Jones-Woods’ commitment to national competition is driven by her desire to expose the girls to life far beyond their impoverished West End neighborhood. “I know the struggles these girls have been dealt because I’m a product of the same environment. I want to help broaden their perspective by giving them an opportunity to visit other cities, experience different cultures, and build a strong network of friends outside of Cincinnati,” said Jones-Woods.

“Sparkles & Spirit” serves as one of the non-profit’s key fundraising events. For more information on sponsorship levels please email booking@q-kidz.org
