American LaMar Baylor spends most of his time in New York City. He works as a performer in the Broadway musical “The Lion King.” But since 2011, he has also spent weeks in Rwanda. There he teaches dance to boys who live on the street. His teaching is part of an effort by the Rebecca Davis Dance Company. The project helps young people learn more about dance. It also helps them understand and learn good classroom behavior. LaMar Baylor describes his students as survivors of genocide. Most have lost their families. Some have been in jail. Others sold their bodies for sex. He says dance classes give the children structured learning and self-expression. Rebecca Davis created the dance company and leads it. She says she got the idea for the project after she visited Rwanda in 2008. She remembers seeing street children dancing. And, she thought that dance could be used to get them off the street and into a safer place. Ms. Davis believes that learning to dance is a first step toward education. She says after children have learned to attend classes and follow directions they can take classes in information and technology. Some boys have won scholarships to attend the Sonrise Boarding School. About 30 boys have won this kind of financial aid. The Rwanda program is the largest one set up by the Rebecca Davis Dance Company. Ms. Davis has also established dance programs in Bosnia-Herzegovina and in Guinea. About 2,000 children in the three countries have taken part in the project since it was launched in 2010.
