“What I really love about teaching West African and African diasporic dance is that it connects children – especially children of African descent – to their roots through dance, drumming, and singing. It also helps all students become more confident in themselves and to learn more about other cultures.”
“If the past years have shown us anything, it has shown us how much we enjoy the arts on a day-to-day basis. Whether it is listening to music or watching our favorite movies and television shows, all of these things come from artists. The more that we can support the arts, the more we can give our youth the opportunity to get a jumpstart on their future.”
“We are proud partners of Arts Horizons in our first year. We love that as a small school, Arts Horizons is able to grow with us and provide the level of flexibility we need. If we need theater, they’ve got it! If we need visual arts or digital arts or dance or music, they’re able to fulfill our needs.”
Art is a cornerstone for all of us. It allows us to express ourselves. It allows us to see beauty in the world around us, and it allows us to create beauty.
“Salsa Festival was great! The students were engaged and loved the performances. It was an educational experience, students learned a lot about the instruments, origin of salsa music and how to dance the Merengue.”
“We need to pour love on our kids and the AH artists have done this. Our staff, kids and parents need the release of art.”
“Working with AH has been life-changing for our students.”
“Since art programs are nearly nonexistent in this community, we wanted to bring them so that kids can see and be exposed to the arts and to know that they can do anything that they want to do!”
