An Open Letter:

The Austin Dancers Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose ultimate goal is a multi-faceted approach in preparing students for life through the development of their bodies and minds using the art of dance, drama and music lessons as well as life lessons in which to encourage productive living and community responsibility. Specializing in tap, jazz, swing dance, drama and drum classes, the ADA teaches the art of dance, music and the theater arts to youth, ages 5 and up. Twice a year, September and June, the ADA presents an elaborate stage production that showcases the talent of our students performing quality dance routines with a live band.Your donation will assure that our students, not only get the quality lessons and tools for performing, but valuable life lessons that they will carry with them throughout their lives. Please take time to review the Adopt-A-Dancer Scholarship information to see how YOU can help. Thank you,

Did you know?
It has been proven that cultural arts programs prevent crime, improve classroom grades & attendance and promotes self esteem in growing children. The Austin Dancers Academy has witnessed this time and again, the improved grades, overcoming extreme shyness, the development of character and self-esteem in their students over many years of working with children.
One of the immediate benefits of recreational activities is that they fill unsupervised after-school hours. The Department of Education has reported that youths are most likely to commit crimes between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., with crime rates peaking at 3 p.m. Recreation programs allow youths to connect with other adults and children in the community. Such positive friendships may assist children in later years. Youth programs are designed to fit the personalities and skills of different children and may include sports, dancing, music, rock climbing, drama, karate, bowling, art, and other activities. –Juvenile Delinquency Article, www.laywer.com
