What a thrilling season here at North Carolina Arts in Action. This year over 1,200 students were introduced to the transformative power of the arts. I am extremely grateful to our phenomenal teaching artists and musicians who inspired our students to reach for the stars and achieve excellence.
It never ceases to amaze me how this teaching pedagogy can motivate even the most resistant child. Our inclusive approach breaks down so many barriers and has so many positive effects on the students, their peers, and teachers. The support of our 12 partner schools and wonderful parent community has played such a pivotal role in our program expansion over the past few years.
Growing up in Austin, TX I had the privilege of participating in a program with the same mission and modeled after our mother ship associate, the National Dance Institute. It was in this program where I was first introduced to this unique pedagogy that instilled in me a sense of self-discipline and a sense of accomplishment that I had never experienced before. I had no idea that my experience would lead me here to NC Arts in Action.
Our work is now more important than ever. Children need to be exposed to new ways of learning and I am a firm believer that learning through the arts can have such a profound impact on the development of a compassionate and successful individual in our demanding 21st century. So to those who have made a difference in my life and our continued supporters I say, thank yo
