Education Creates Opportunity!

Community involvement through workshops is the second best way performers can serve their audience!

By making our process as dancers, writers and composers visible, we are inviting the community into our inner world. Educating others and empowering their dance, music, art and creativity is not only fun, it is exactly how we plan to invest in the next generation of artists.

Every artist will tell you about that experience that inspired or that person who took an interest in their talent and mentored them. A compassionate personal encounter can ignite a lifetime of creativity. We seek to create those moments through our education and outreach programs. Giving artists in other communities the chance to witness the process and skills that go into the creation of our performances.
