Mission

Provide high-quality arts education (music and dance classes) directly to children in schools and youth organizations that lack access to arts education. Our arts education program provides schools with a well-trained teaching artist, sequential curriculum, and instruments. For schools that have arts funding we offer sliding scale pricing, for schools with little to no funding, we use gifts from generous donors to cover the fees. We also offer professional development for educators to incorporate more arts education into the culture of their classroom and schools and DEI school wide arts education assemblies teaching about music and movement from different parts of the world and cultures.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Music and Movement Program

Our Music and Movement Classes, typically 20 45 minutes per week, focus on the sequential development of musical skills. All of our classes meet or exceed the California Arts Standards for Music.
Musical Genres: Jazz, Classical, Folk from around the world, West African, Brazilian, Mexican, Mariachi, Peruvian, American, Cuban, Caribbean and more. We will introduce students to as many genres as possible to expose their bodies and minds to new sounds, beats, rhythms, languages, and modes of expression.
Instruments (varies by grade level): Drums, recorders, ukuleles, rhythm sticks, shakers, bells, scarves
Composition: All children in our programs are involved in writing their own music, movement, stories, rhythms. This makes a connection with music in a way that cannot be done from only listening to an adult giving directions.
History & Representation: History brings context to the music children are learning. Tracing back styles or genres of music leads to powerful origination stories.

Population(s) Served

Our Professional Development program offers a pathway to implementing music and movement into the day to day culture within the classroom. Our expert Teaching Artists collaborate with educators in the classroom where they demonstrate ways of integrating music and movement into daily activities to increase SEL, boost pre-literacy and increase cognitive benefits for students. With our program, educators gain practical strategies to bring arts education seamlessly into the classroom.

Our Dance Classes, typically 20 45 minutes per week, focus on the sequential development of movement skills. In our classes children learn about their anatomy and how and why their bodies move in different ways. We teach different dance styles including Creative Dance (ECE), HipHop, Jazz, Ballet, Latin Dance, Musical Theater, World Dance, and Folk Dance.

Our Dance classes meet or exceed the California Arts Standards for Music and Dance. All classes follow our student growth framework: agency (working confidently solo and in groups), competency (expressing skills at level) and creativity (creating original work).

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
