New Hope Academy Charter School, 459 W. King St., York, has been selected as a 2012 GoGirlGo! Pennsylvania Grant recipient for its after school dance program, The Mighty Dantz Team.

The dance team combines dance training with an educational aspect focusing on healthy ways to cope with issues girls may face as adolescents in society. Serving 40 girls in grades 5-8, the program is offered at no cost to participants. Students learn not only dance basics, but also infuse their dance with various styles such as jazz, hip-hop, ballet and lyrical.

The after-school program will begin in January and is open to all girls in grades 5-8 living in York City. Participants meet three times a week from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at the Strand Capitol Performing Arts Center.
