Performing Arts

Our students are given the opportunity to discover and develop skills in music, dance, and drama. Students perform onsite and in the community, which helps to bridge the gap of misconceptions for adults with intellectual disabilities. These performances educate, enlighten, and inspire the public. In turn, our performers are able to give back to the community in a productive and meaningful way, fostering a genuine sense of self-worth and empowerment in each individual.
