Crowdfunding for Children's Festival
We have made is very easy for you to support this year's Children's Festival by creating a Razoo crowdfunding page. It's very special.
This year we are moving into the nearby Pearson Park and FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER will have a huge canopy under which we will offer FIVE instant classes for beginners in both Dance and Drama. This means more expense to rent the canopy, floor, PA equipment, signage and literature for families to take away.
Anaheim elementary schools have been arts deprived for many years. But the tide is turning. An expansive music program is growing in most schools. However, the performing arts of Dance and Theatre are largely missing.
This Festival, with the follow-up schools advocacy program, is designed to raise awareness of the crucial value of Dance and Drama in elementary schools.
