Deaf, hard-of-hearing, deaf-blind, deaf-disabled and hearing youth
representing multi-lingual, cultural, racial, and socio-economic diversity.
DEAFinitely youth learn to communicate and work together as a team, expressing positive messages through dance and ASL.

Performance artist Savannah Dahan is a native American Sign Language signer who was born Deaf to Deaf parents. She started performing to music at a very early age, which became a family activity. When Savannah was 8 years old, her parents posted a video of her performing to Carrie Underwood’s “The Champion.” This video immediately went viral, amassing over 10 million views within a week.
Savannah, now 10, uses her social media platform to educate the community about various topics, including accessibility especially at live entertainment venues, marine environment awareness, and American Sign Language/Deaf culture.
