Lake Arts Project
A non-profit organization demonstrating how art is an essential part of life.
The original Mission of Lake Arts Project was to give young people an experience immersed in art, teaching them that art is an essential part of life. We accomplish this through creative and collaborative performance-based projects. Finding opportunities for young people to create art and to experience how their artwork affects the world around them provides a self-confidence and a deeper understanding of the value of community.
Today, as ballet educators and former professional dancers, we strive to bring dance and art into the lives of those around us including students, their families, our audiences, and our community. In the classes we teach, we feel our students benefit from more than just dance training. In seeking a way to enrich our students' training and education exposure with a deeper understanding
of what both dance and other artforms can bring to their lives, we have created Lake Arts Project to join forces with other like minded, arts-based organizations to bring dance and other arts together for the benefit of both those who participate and those who observe.
We feel that we all must:
Understand how art is vital in today's world.
Discover how art can directly and indirectly affect our lives, and the lives of everyone around them.
Learn how passion, study, and skill in art forms can lead to a balance, peace, joy, and, at times, a profession in life.
