BENEFITING: URBAN ARTISTRY INC
Urban Artistry, Inc., is an internationally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the performance and preservation of art forms inspired by the urban experience. Serving as cultural ambassadors for communities that are often unsung, the group fulfills their mission through effective collaborations that support artists past, present, and future. Urban Artistry makes a significant impact through education and service, preservation and community-building, and excellence and innovation in urban dance cultural programming.
About one year ago, we opened the doors to our first full-time studio, the Urban Artistry Dance Academy (UADA). Our Dance Academy provides an interdisciplinary urban dance education with a global perspective. Students are encouraged to become active participants and thought leaders in their respective communities, where they are not limited to mainstream trends but strive to become advocates of cultural preservation and artistic innovation.
After one year of operation, we have successfully completed two full semesters, taught over students, awarded XX certificates, begun our Funkateers Youth program, and held XX number of workshops, XX number of battles and jams, and XX number of open sessions. Our new studio has provided a new home for community members to learn, share, explore, connect, preserve, and ultimately elevate each other and the entire urban dance community.
We need YOUR help to continue offering our services to our community. Specifically, your donation will help us develop and build community partnerships, staff our classes, expand our adult and youth programming, expand our curriculum to include wellness and fitness classes, and provide financial and development resources to continue to fund our work.
Thank you so much and Happy Holidays from the Urban Artistry family!
