Who We Are
Jessica DePalma founder of Your Turn (with her sisters Alexandria and Gracen) has been dancing for 14 years at Performing Arts Dance Academy in Hamburg, New York. Jessica credits her joy for life, confidence, ability to multi-task and perform or present at a moments notice to her dance background.
In a time when schools are cutting music, theater and art programs, DePalma wanted to ensure that others in her community have the opportunity to dance, put on a show and perform. The DePalma sisters have been putting on shows on stage (and in their living room) and donating costumes for several years and realized they could help the community and give others the gift of dance...and that's how Your Turn was conceived.
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain.
Everyone should have the opportunity to experience the joy of dance. We collect and distribute gently used dance costumes, dance shoes and leotards so that children in and around our community can experience dance.
Dancing feet are happy feet.
To give every child the opportunity to dance regardless of income, race or ability and to help bring dance into schools and community centers in Western New York.
