My students are ages 5-12 in a vibrant neighborhood of Chicago. They are active hands-on learners that enjoy the arts and learning new ways to express themselves. They love sharing their stories and accomplishments through performing. Many of them come from single parent families or are being raised by other family members. Funds are not always available for things like musical instruments or lessons. The opportunities to create and share with each other through the arts is as vital to their development as their academic success. Our staff is very supportive of the arts and constantly looking for new opportunities to enrich our student's educations.
