The Dancing Divas and Dudes was started in Nashville as the first nonprofit dance team for individuals with special needs. Each team member has the opportunity to grow physically, mentally, and emotionally at practices while learning a variety of dance genres. The nonprofit plays a crucial role in erasing the stigma that individuals with special needs take away from society, and proving they contribute. The Dancing Divas and Dudes is looking for board members with law, marketing, strategic planning or fine arts skills. If interested, contact president Elizabeth Pistole at or (615) 509-3922.
