Mission: D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is a non-profit organization dedicated to broadening the horizons of inner city youth by means of the Arts. D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts provides quality performing arts instruction and programs to the underserved communities and lower income families of Tacoma/Pierce County. D.A.S.H. Center provides access to the works of under-appreciated African American and other minority artists. The D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is a home for people, primarily youth, to develop natural talent, confidence, and self-esteem, as well as acquire the skills necessary for a career in the performing arts.D.A.S.H. stands for Dancing, Acting, and Singing in Harmony. While the D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is available to and welcomes persons of all walks of life, its primary targets are inner city youth, who otherwise, would have less opportunity to explore and develop their creative abilities. For this reason the D.A.S.H. Center for the Arts is a non-profit organization. D.A.S.H. is the home for the active, community outreach organization, Reality Check.
Dash has been a life changing non-profit for me and my kid, she started to dance last year and is a different person because of the people and the programs . They have changed my girls life for the better, I just want to thank them .
I love this place. My daughter has been dancing with dash & reality check for 5 years. She started out very shy and withdrawn and now she's blossoming into a true performer and is planning to go to the school of the arts and juliard. Dash instructors take special care to teach the kids and boost their self esteem. Can't ask for a better set up.
