#GivingTuesday November 27th 
"My son is on the LEAP Team and he has opened up so much as an individual. He was shy and socially awkward before joining this year. I have seen so much progress and growth in him over the last few months since being on the Team. This year was the first time he received all 3's on his report card and he's in 4th grade. The biggest difference - Arts In Action! So for me and my son it's been a Godsend. Thank you Arts in Action for being here for my son and so many other children!" - Parent of LEAP dancer

Your donations this #GivingTuesday helps children like this LEAP Team dancer to dream big, set goals, persevere and gain confidence in school and life.

Our LEAP Team,  NC AIA Ambassadors, performed in "The Art of Creativity" at Hotel Indigo in Durham on October 21. Our LEAP Team benefitted from the proceeds of the event.  This event included a three month long gallery display featuring several arts organizations, including the band 19 Miles and a silent auction for 
original paintings by Beth Palmer Studio.

 "The most awe inspiring benefit of working with NCAIA, is watching the transformation of children's lives! The numerous stories of those who walk into the first AIA class with their hoodies pulled tight over their heads never wanting to make eye contact, or those who do not speak or participate, then suddenly, the same students evolve into soloists, narrators, heroes! I have not yet been able to make it through a final performance with a dry eye. My heart and soul burst with pride for these children and what they have been able to overcome." - Teacher
