Art in all of its beautiful forms is one of the if not the best way to spark hope, change, and dedication within a child. When a child finds their passion within an art form the odds of them turning to negative outlets become almost obsolete. We have the chance to spark a FIRE for music, dance, painting, acting, playing an instrument, and the list goes on with these children. Each child we work with on this project has the potential to grow spiritually, emotionally, and mentally in ways only found within the arts. Please donate some time to our future, our neighborhoods, our city, and hey everyone these are OUR kids. It takes a village and in today's society the village have become scary, violent, and unrelenting in stealing our children's futures. Let's show these kids what a village is supposed to be like, look like, and best yet what it feels like. Thank you all who are committed to our kids already and I can't wait to see the positive impact on both sides of this project. Today it's 80 kids, tomorrow it's 200 & so on. 😊😊 Danni
For the coaches and advisors who have accepted a role I will be in touch. I want to come take a photo of you and get a little background. I will be posting these on this page, our main page, and you're pages. The photo is to display YOU in you're element.. I can come to a live concert if you want, or just a head shot.... Whatever you would like, this is you're first introduction to our parents and kids. So YES, YES, I want you in you're comfort zone, in your element. So please when I reach out let me know a time or place when I can meet with you. I will come to you no matter where you are, I am and will be doing all I can to make this process as easy as possible... :)
