Closer to the Arts!

IMPACT: 3,000 children in the Baton Rouge Area

The goal of the Closer to the Arts! Project is to increase exposure to the arts for children attending schools that are unable to provide adequate enrichment opportunities. Closer to the Arts, in conjunction with our community partner, Of Moving Colors, will also engage children and adults in physical activity while increasing awareness of childhood obesity and creative methods of exercise. JLBR volunteers will assist with Kick It Out, a performance featuring children, some with no prior dance training or experience, who have the opportunity to perform alongside company dancers in a professional production. Our members will also assist with Of Moving Colors’ annual Zombie Bash, as well as assist with the presentation at local schools during National Dance Week.
