The femcho* program is developed to promote confidence, leadership, health, and fitness among girls in a fun, hip way. Our workshop consists of dance/fitness, girl talk, and a confidence-building compliment. Facilitated femcho* girl-talk is a discussion that takes place in a safe and nurturing environment. Girls reflect and bond while sharing without any judgement or criticism. The dance/fitness segment consists of easy to follow moves to the girls' favorite music.

Specific femcho* modules determine the topics discussed. The femcho* program is brought to your troop meeting location. One of our trained and experienced femcho* facilitators will come to your location. We will provide femcho* bracelets, Girl Scout patches, appropriate music, and speakers.

Over 4,000 Girl Scouts have experienced femcho* workshops. Through different modules that focus on topics such as friendship, leadership, healthy choices, confidence, compassion, fitness and power, femcho* can be adapted to achieve many Girl Scout journeys, petals, and to earn several girl-scout badges. The femcho* patch is a bedazzled iron-on encrusted with Swarovski crystals. Scouts have incorporated femcho to earn Silver Awards, and become mentors to earn more kinds of badges than we can name!

femcho* has had the honor of leading over a thousand scouts and troop leaders in a dance/fitness routine during the 100 year Anniversary Bridge Crossing at Randall's Island. We have also had the pleasure of offering our program at Camp Kaufmann.

TADA! is a unique Drama Desk award-winning nonprofit youth theater that produces original musicals for children, teens, and family audiences. Our mission is to provide young people from different backgrounds with musical theater programs that inspire them to be creative, learn, and think differently.

TADA! presents original musicals in the Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer that are performed by kids, for kids! The shows tackle topics as varied as American history and dystopian futures; as delightful as a boy who simply can't fall asleep or a clumsy fairy who has trouble granting wishes; and as challenging as bullying, peer pressure, and anxiety -- all with care, appropriate language, charm, and wit. Girl Scout groups of 15 or more can receive tickets for only $8 per child and $10 per adult.

TADA! also offers musical theater workshops that can be tailored to the themes in our productions or a theme of the Troop's choosing. Workshops include educational theater games coupled with learning songs and choreography to popular musical numbers.
