Hi, I'm Rebecca! I believe arts education is vital in our schools because as a ballet dancer I was able see in myself how much creative expression and creative movement can benefit an individuals' education. Growing up and taking ballet lessons certainly enhanced my critical thinking skills, self-discipline, and self-expression. I am a huge proponent for Performing Arts Workshop because I believe in PAW's longstanding value that all young people, regardless of social status, identity, or ability are equally entitled to benefit from the creative process. Please help me in fundraising for San Francisco non-profit Performing Arts Workshop!

To mark the Workshop’s more than 50-year history, our Fifth-Annual Student Showcase, Rhythms & Rhymes, will highlight our students' year-long focus on the process toward performance! This year, Bay Area students will perform world dance, theater, music, spoken word poems, and Capoeira, at the historic Brava Theater in San Francisco’s Mission district. To ensure this event is accessible for everyone, attendance is FREE. But our students can’t perform on the famous Brava stage without the generosity of supporters like you!
Gifts to our Crowdrise, regardless of amount, help fund the costs of our annual Student Showcase. And for this year, we want to make our Showcase all the more relevant to our Workshop communities. Because our work is concerned with the interaction of art and what's relevant in our students' lives. Because we work with our students, and not for them. And because five-year anniversaries are big. And if you're like many of our students, and it's your very first performance on a professional stage, the memory stays with you long after the spotlight fades. So please give to keep this five-year tradition going strong! Any gift to our Crowdrise helps with the following needs:
- tech and lighting support during the event
- rehearsal space
- refreshments for the students at rehearsal
- theater stage rental
- instruments and costumes
- a pre-show reception for families, educators, and friends
- photography and videography
Because we’re an #ARTONAMISSION organization, and we’re here to stay!
