Turn up Artistic Participation
Teamwork. Responsibility. Adaptability.
As a tap dancer for over 20 years, I can attest the art form has taught me much more than just dance moves. While I was fortunate to directly benefit from the social, emotional, and mental benefits that the arts have on youth development, 39% of our youth are not, despite the accessibility and presence in communities nationwide. Since 2018, I’ve made it my mission to Turn Up Artistic Participation across the U.S. to better equip individuals of all ages with an outlet that can enhance their quality of life while positively impacting the communities in which they live. TAP with me as I Turn up Artistic Participation!
