About Chance to Dance Company Chance to Dance Co. was originally founded in 2004, by Melissa Joy Klare in Dallas, Texas debuting at Scottish Rite Hospital. Combining her love and passion for dance, she wanted to bring the joy of dance and creativity through movement as a therapeutic outlet for children with disabilities and special needs. Our Mission To make the art-form of dance accessible to children with special needs and disabilities. To nourish, train, and encourage children through the movement of dance. To provide a creative, therapeutic, and artistic outlet for self-expression. To make the joy of dance accessible in a safe environment, developing their natural strengths and abilities. We believe there is not a physical challenge or disability that cannot tap into the art-form and joy of dance.
